With William Plumer in Romans, Day 6 – Morning

Romans 1:1-2
NAS – Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which He promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures,
KJV – Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

“For thousands of years there have been in the world rolls, or parchments, or books, which have been known by various names as the law, the Psalms and the prophets, the word of the Lord, the Scripture, the Scriptures and the holy Scriptures, v. 2. These contain a vast store of divine knowledge. They have long been the rejoicing of good men’s hearts. They sufficiently account for the vast differences discovered between men and nations. These books claim to be and they are God’s word to men. They claim to be and they are a revelation from heaven. They claim to be and they are holy writings; for the teach holiness, encourage holiness, and abound in holy doctrines and precepts. It is one of God’s great mercies to men that they have his written word.” (Romans, 41)
