Romans 1:1-7 - The Lectionary Epistle Lesson for Sunday, December 19, 2010
This is my own translation of the lectionary gospel lesson for Sunday. Please make any comments concerning the passage you want. Together, let’s discuss the Word of God.
1Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called an apostle, separated for the good news of God, 2which he promised beforehand through his prophets in holy writings, 3concerning his son who came from the seed of David according to flesh, 4who was designated Son of God with power according to the spirit of holiness from the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ, our Lord, 5through whom we received grace and apostleship for obedience to faith in all the nations for the sake of his name, 6in which you yourselves are also called by Jesus Christ, 7to all those who are in Rome, beloved of God, called holy; grace to you and peace from God our father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
