For the invisible things of him, his eternal power and divinity, are clearly understood by the creation of the world and by the things that are made so that there is no excuse – Romans 1:20
Major highlight: The reconciliation of God’s sovereignty and man’s free will.
When Paul wrote the epistle of Romans, his intention was that Romans would read the whole letter in one sitting, and that they would understand what they were reading without further explanation. Sometimes we dig so deep into scripture that we lose the basic meaning of what we’re reading. This is not, then, as much a commentary as it is an attempt to revitalize interest in the book of Romans itself – as it was written, and as it was meant to be understood. Attention is drawn to the words and phrases of the text, highlighting things imperative to be understood and claimed for our own.
About the Bible Version Used in This Commentary
In the Jubilee Bible, the usage and context tends to define each key word so you don’t need to depend on theological dictionaries or reference materials. Careful attention has been made to properly translate the first usage of each key word and through to the last occurrence. The Jubilee Bible is the only translation we know of that has each unique Hebrew word matched and mated with a unique English word so that the usage (number of occurrences and number of verses where the word occurs) sets forth a meaningful number pattern and a complete definition of what God means by each word.
