With William Plumer in Romans, Day 8 – Morning

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, concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh, who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord…
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,) concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

“He, who slights Jesus Christ, slights the Son of God; and only he, who hopes in him as the Son of God, has any interest in his salvation, v. 4. God is indeed one in essence, but he is not one in person. We adore the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The Father is of none, neither begotten nor proceeding. The Holy Ghost proceeds. The Son is begotten, the only begotten of the Father. The Father doth eternally communicate to the Son his own divine essence, though in a manner to us inconceivable and ineffable. So that although the Son was for us incarnate, yet is he the brightness of the Father’s glory and the express image of his person. The Son of God becoming man did not become two persons, but in his two natures is one person for ever, the two natures being united, not confused, nor mixed, but united, neither nature being absorbed, so that we have one Christ, and not two, one Lord Jesus and but one Lord Jesus.”
