1). Albert barnes Commentary: Who wrote this - It is evident that Paul employed an amanuensis to write this Epistle, and perhaps he commonly did it. Tertius, who thus wrote it, joins with the apostle in affectionate salutations to the brethren at Rome. To the Epistle, Paul signed his own name, and added a salutation in his own hand-writing. Col 4:18, "The salutation by the hand of me Paul;" and in Th2 3:17, he says that this was done in every epistle, Co1 16:21.
