Wesley's Notes for Romans 15:31


15:31 That I may be delivered - He is thus urgent from a sense of the importance of his life to the church. Otherwise he would have rejoiced to depart, and to be with Christ. And that my service may be acceptable - In spite of all their prejudices; to the end the Jewish and gentile believers may be knit together in tender love.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 15:31


Ro 15:31 That I may be delivered. Paul knew too well the bitter hostility of the Jews to him, and that his visit to Jerusalem would be beset with dangers. He goes there with some forebodings. See Ac 20:22 21:13. And that my service . . . may be acceptable to the saints. The Jewish brethren looked with great prejudice on Paul's work among the Gentiles, and that various rumors were circulated among them. See Ac 21:21.
