With William Plumer in Romans, Day 3 – Evening

Romans 1:1
NAS – Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God…
KJV – Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God…

“Since the death of John there have be no apostles on earth. Paul was the last, whom Jesus invested with that office. His personal call was necessary. John 20:21. To all the apostles was promised plenary inspiration. John 16:13. They had all seen the Lord. They all were miraculously endowed, and had the signs of an apostle. Although a man might have some of these things and not be an apostle; yet he could not be an apostle without having all these things. All the pretences of moderns to the apostolic office are both absurd and wicked.” (Romans, 40)
