Romans 5:7

For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet perhaps for a good man some would even dare to die.
Read Chapter 5


AD 400
Christ died for the ungodly. Now if someone will hardly die for a righteous man, how can it be that someone should die for ungodly people? And if someone might dare to die for one good man (or not dare, since the phrase is ambiguous), how can it be that someone would dare to die for a multitude of the ungodly? For if someone dares to die for a righteous or good man, it is probably because he has been touched with some sort of pity or been impressed by his good works. But in the case of the ungodly, not only is there no reason to die for them, but there is plenty to move us to tears when we look at them! Commentary on Paul’s Epistles.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
