The utmost reach of human affection might be that a man would die for the good-he would scarcely die for the righteous. 1801-1803. A young student in history (saith Polybius) should have the whole history of the world under his view; and should reduce all into one body. He is the One who “is the radiance of [God’s] glory and the exact representation of His nature, [who] upholds all things by the word of His power” (Heb. Whereas these first eleven verses being supposed to be spoken of the Gentiles, makes them not only of a piece with St. Paul's design in the foregoing and following chapters, but the thread of the whole discourse goes on very smooth, and the inferences (ushered in with therefore in the first verse, and with wherefore in the 12th verse) are very easy, clear, and natural, from the immediately preceding verses. It was His beloved Son, in whom He was well-pleased (Matt. III. We cannot admire too much, in the love of Jesus Christ, the beautiful union—blending the general interest with particular tenderness. 1874-1909. Greek. The present tense is used, because the atoning death of Christ is the fact which remains the most striking manifestation of the love of God. BibliographyIce, Rhoderick D. "Commentary on Romans 5:8". Otherwise the sacrifice of God would be inferior to that of man, whereas it must be infinitely exalted above it. I need not remind you, either, of how deep, in our own hearts, when the conscience begins to speak its not ambiguous oracles, there does rise the conviction that there is much in us which it is impossible should be the object of God’s love. But the one who is forgiven little loves little. "Mark Dunagan Commentaries on the Bible". His love.—Strictly, His own love. "Commentary on Romans 5:8". Look at the force of this proof. As a story it moves the hearts of men, and ‘purges them, by pity and by terror.’ But the death of many a hero of tragedy does all that. BibliographyBeza, Theodore. Only let me press upon you that that conviction of the love of God, which is found now far beyond the limits of Christian faith, and amongst many of us who, in the name of that conviction itself, reject Christianity, because of its sterner aspects, is historically the child of the evangelical doctrine of the Incarnation and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. "Family Bible New Testament". That was a death for another, but ‘Jesus died for us’ in a deeper sense than that. But because Christ is one with God, Paul can speak of the cross as a demonstration of the love of God.” On the cross, Christ didn’t die to persuade the angry God of the Old Testament to love us, as some mistakenly have pictured it. The two terms are never distinguished like that in Scripture. That the Gentiles were styled εχθροι, enemies, in a political or national sense, is plain from Ephesians 2 where they are called, aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenant.
