“And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.”
King James Version (KJV)
15:12 There shall be the root of Jesse - That kings and the Messiah should spring from his house, was promised to Jesse before it was to David. In him shall the gentiles hope - Who before had been without hope, #Eph 2:12|. #Isa 11:10|
Ro 15:12 Esaias saith. The quotation that follows is from Isa 11:10, a chapter which is throughout a prediction of Christ and his kingdom. A root of Jesse. Jesse, the father of David, was an ancestor of Jesus (Mt 1:6 Lu 3:32). In him shall the Gentiles trust. The passage quoted shows very clearly that Christ was to be the Savior of the Gentiles.
