Preparing for Romans 9

I am preparing an entire series coming up on the blog on Romans 9.  My prayer is to be biblical, to offer correct exegesis of the chapter, and to provide Arminians with a look into this controversial chapter.  Calvinists have used Romans 9 for years to prove the doctrine of unconditional election and many Arminians have tripped over this chapter.  Dr. R.C. Sproul even stated that for the first five years of his salvation, he too was an Arminian but he couldn’t get around Romans 9 and so he surrendered with his head to Calvinism but not his heart until later.

I will be using several Bible commentaries to help me work through the chapter including F.F. Bruce, Jack Cottrell, and Vic Reasoner.  I also hope to add Matthew Henry and Adam Clarke in there as well.  Romans 9 is a wonderful chapter that has confused many.  I pray that we can all learn from Romans 9 even if you disagree with me over Arminianism.

  3. What are your recommendations for an overall Romans commentary with an Arminian emphasis?

    • The two best are Vic Reasoner’s commentary, A Fundamental Wesleyan Commentary on Romans, and Jack Cottrell’s commentary on Romans published by College Press.

      • Thanks…I just added Cottrell’s commentary to my Logos collection. I will finish teaching Acts in December (56 messages over two years) and am going to start Romans in 2014. This Blog is a real blessing my friend. …Mike

      • Glad to know you are an expositor. We need more of this. Reasoner’s commentary on Romans is harder to get as you have to order it from Fundamental Wesleyan Press but it is worth it. Well done and very extensive. God bless you too my brother!

      • I did order Reasoner’s commentary through Amazon and then tacked it back to their publishing web site.

  4. Looking forward to it!
