Romans 10:17 Parallel
Vincent's Word Studies

By hearing (ἐξ ἀκοῆς)

The same word as report, above, and in the same sense, that which is heard.

Word of God (ῥήματος Θεοῦ)

The best texts read of Christ. Probably not the Gospel, but Christ's word of command or commission to its preachers; thus taking up except they be sent (Romans 10:15), and emphasizing the authority of the message. Belief comes through the message, and the message through the command of Christ.
