People's Bible Notes for Romans 15:12


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.
