The Epistle to the Romans is "a writing," says Dr. Macknight,"which, for sublimity and truth of sentiment, for brevity andstrength of expression, for regularity in its structure, butabove all, for the unspeakable importance of the discoverieswhich it contains, stands unrivalled by any mere humancomposition, and as far exceeds the most celebrated productionsof the learned Greeks and Romans, as the shining of the sunexceeds the twinkling of the stars." "The plan of it is veryextensive; and it is surprising to see what a spacious field ofknowledge is comprised, and how many various designs, arguments,explications, instructions, and exhortations, are executed in sosmall a compass
...The whole Epistle is to be taken in
connection, or considered as one continued discourse; and thesense of every part must be taken from the drift of the whole.Every sentence, or verse, is not to be regarded as a distinctmathematical proposition, or theorem, or as a sentence in thebook of Proverbs, whose sense is absolute, and independent ofwhat goes before, or comes after: but we must remember, thatevery sentence, especially in the argumentative part, bearsrelation to, and is dependent upon, the whole discourse, andcannot be rightly understood unless we understand the scope anddrift of the whole; and therefore, the whole Epistle, or atleast the eleven first chapters of it, ought to be read over atonce, without stopping. As to the use and excellency of thisEpistle, I shall leave it to speak for itself, when the readerhas studied and well digested its contents
...This Epistle will
not be difficult to understand, if our minds are unprejudiced,and at liberty to attend to the subject, and to the currentscriptural sense of the words used. Great care is taken toguard and explain every part of the subject; no part of it isleft unexplained or unguarded. Sometimes notes are written upona sentence, liable to exception and wanting explanation, as ch.2:12-16. Here the 13th and 15th verses are a comment upon theformer part of it. Sometimes are found comments upon a singleword; as ch
10:11-13 . The 12th and 13th verses are a comment
upon [pas ,] every one, in the 11th.This Epistle displays a perspicuous brevity, as ch
5:13 14.
For until the law sin was in the world, etc. Surely never wasthere a greater variety of useful sentiments crowded into asmaller compass; and yet so skilfully, that one part veryclearly explains another
...It is by the Holy Spirit's
influence, that the apostle has brought such a variety ofarguments, instructions, and sentiments, all stated, proved, andsufficiently guarded, explained, and defended, within the limitsof a letter; which has made it a magazine of the most real,extensive, useful, profitable, and divine knowledge. The Jewsare treated with great caution and tenderness
...The transitions
and advances to an ungrateful subject are very interesting; asch
2:1-17 ; 8:17 . Here is found complicated design, and while
teaching one thing, gives us an opportunity of learning one ortwo more
So ch. 13:1-8 is taught the duty of subjects, and at
the same time magistrates are instructed in their duty, and thegrounds of their authority. The inspired writer never losessight of his subject, and writes under a deep and lively senseof the truth and importance of the Gospel, as a man who clearlyunderstood it, and in whose heart and affections it reigned farsuperior to all temporal considerations."
