    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:26

    Porque los de Macedonia y Acaya tuvieron por bien hacer una colecta para los pobres de los santos que estn en Jerusaln.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. For it hath pleased them of
    Macedonia and Achaia , etc..] That is, the churches of Macedonia, particularly Philippi and Thessalonica; and the churches of Achaia, especially the church at Corinth, which was the metropolis of Achaia: to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem ; of which contribution, of their great forwardness, readiness, and liberality, a large account is given in ( 2 Corinthians 8:1-9:15); from whence Origen and others have rightly concluded, that this epistle to the Romans was wrote after that; since in that the apostle exhorts and encourages them, by the example of the Macedonian churches, to finish the collection they had begun; which collection is here called a contribution, or communion, as the word signifies; it being one part of the communion of churches and of saints, to relieve their poor, by communicating to them, and to assist each other therein; and in which they have not only fellowship with one another, but with Christ the head; who takes what is done to the least of his brethren as done to himself: the persons for whom the collection was made, are the poor saints, or the poor of the saints; for not all the saints, but the poor among them, were the objects of this generosity: they were saints such as are sanctified by God the Father in eternal election, and by the blood of Christ in redemption, and by the Spirit of Christ in the effectual calling, to these this goodness extended; for though good is to be done to all men, yet more especially to the household of faith: they were poor, which is the lot of many who are saints, whom God has chosen, to whom the Gospel is preached, and who are called by grace: these came to be so, either through the great dearth which was throughout the world in the times of Claudius Caesar, when the brethren at Jerusalem particularly suffered, and were relieved by the disciples at Antioch; but this collection was made some years after that, and therefore rather they became so, through the persecutions of their countrymen; by whom they suffered joyfully the spoiling of their goods, knowing that they had a better and more enduring substance in heaven; or else through their having sold all their possessions, and thrown their money into one common stock and fund, for mutual subsistence, which was now exhausted: these poor saints lived at Jerusalem, which was at a great distance from Macedonia and Achaia; but though they were strangers, and unknown by face to them, and had only heard of them, and their distress; yet this was no objection to their cheerful contribution; they considered them as members of the same body, as belonging to the same family, and as standing in the same spiritual relation to God and Christ with themselves; and upon this foot they acted; and what they did is worthy the imitation of all the churches and people of God.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 22-29 - The
    apostle sought the things of Christ more than his own will, an would not leave his work of planting churches to go to Rome. I concerns all to do that first which is most needful. We must not tak it ill if our friends prefer work which is pleasing to God, befor visits and compliments, which may please us. It is justly expected from all Christians, that they should promote every good work, especiall that blessed work, the conversion of souls. Christian society is heaven upon earth, an earnest of our gathering together unto Christ a the great day. Yet it is but partial, compared with our communion with Christ; for that only will satisfy the soul. The apostle was going to Jerusalem, as the messenger of charity. God loves a cheerful giver Every thing that passes between Christians should be a proof an instance of the union they have in Jesus Christ. The Gentiles receive the gospel of salvation from the Jews; therefore were bound to ministe to them in what was needed for the body. Concerning what he expecte from them he speaks doubtfully; but concerning what he expected from God he speaks confidently. We cannot expect too little from man, no too much from God. And how delightful and advantageous it is to have the gospel with the fulness of its blessings! What wonderful and happ effects does it produce, when attended with the power of the Spirit!

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    26. Contribution (koinwnian). See on
    fellowship, Acts ii. 42.

    Poor saints (ptwcouv twn agiwn). More literally, and better, the poor of the saints. Rev., among the saints. All the saints were not poor.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:26 {For it hath been the good pleasure of Macedonia and Achaia} (udoksan gar Makedonia kai Achaia). "For Macedonia and Achaia took pleasure." The use of udoksan (first aorist active indicative of eudokew) shows that it was voluntary (#2Co 8:4). Paul does not here mention Asia and Galatia. {A certain contribution} (koinwnian tina). Put thus because it was unknown to the Romans. For this sense of koin"nian, see #2Co 8:4; 9:13. {For the poor among the saints} (eis tous pt"cous t"n hagiwn). Partitive genitive. Not all there were poor, but #Ac 4:32-5:11; 6:1-6; 11:29f.; Ga 2:10 prove that many were.
