This Man Receives SinnersAnd the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

DESCRIPTION OF THE LORD’S PEOPLE Rom. 16:1-27 Tom Harding When we are reading Romans 16 there is a tendency to read over the first 24 verses and skip down to the doxology of praise in verse 25-27. We have not only in these verses the 36 names of some God’s elect chosen in Him before […]
