Paul was ready to go to Rome (Rom 1:15)

“Thus,

I am eager

To proclaim

The gospel

To you also,

Who are in Rome.”

οὕτως τὸ κατ’ ἐμὲ πρόθυμον καὶ ὑμῖν τοῖς ἐν Ῥώμῃ εὐαγγελίσασθαι.

Paul said that he was ready or eager (οὕτως τὸ κατ’ ἐμὲ πρόθυμον) to proclaim the gospel (εὐαγγελίσασθαι) also to those who were in Rome (καὶ ὑμῖν τοῖς ἐν Ῥώμῃ).  Paul was enthusiastic, ready and eager, to preach and proclaim the gospel of Jesus to those in Rome.  This almost sounds like he was going to get on the next ship and go to Rome with all this eagerness.  It would be about ten years before he went to Rome.  How eager are you to go to Rome?
