Romans Chapter 1

Romans 1:1 Sha'ul (Paul), a servant of Yeshua HaMashiach, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of G-d (HaShem),

As we begin our study of Romans, Sha'ul (Paul) describes himself as a servant, apostle, and set apart for the gospel (good news).

To be an apostle one had to have seen G-d. That is why there are no apostles today.

1 Corinthians 9:1 Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Yeshua (Jesus) our L-rd? Are you not my work in the L-rd?

1 Corinthians 15:3-9 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Messiah (Christ) died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as it were to one untimely born, He appeared to me also. For I am the least of the apostles, who am not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of G-d.

Paul was a separated saint. There were three specific separations:

1. At his birth

Galatians 1:15-17 But when He who had set me apart, even from my mother's womb, and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went away to Arabia, and returned once more to Damascus.

2. On the Damascus road

Acts 9:15-16 But the L-rd said to him, "Go, for he is a chosen instrument of Mine, to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the sons of Israel; for I will show him how much he must suffer for My name's sake. "

3. At Antioch his call to service.

Acts 13:2 And while they were ministering to the L-rd and fasting, Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) said, "Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them."

Romans 1:2 (Which he had promised afore by His prophets in the holy scriptures,)

Paul states the prophets in their writings promised the good news. "It is not new. Paul said the Tanakh spoke of it. In Romans he quotes from the Tanakh no less than sixty-one times, fourteen books.

Cults that claim to have new truth concerning the gospel are only trying to entice you to join.

Romans 1:3-4 Concerning His Son Yeshua HaMashiach our L-rd, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of G-d with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

Yeshua is described as a descendant of David and the "marked out" Son of G-d. Marked out comes from the Greek word "horizo" which means horizon. Which means marked out by sure signs." The resurrection is one of these signs. (There were many other signs to show the glory of G-d. When Yeshua performed these signs it was at this time one could blaspheme Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) which was an unforgivable offense.)

His "Humanity" and "Deity" is revealed here in the chapter.
