…a Bible student's notes…

A verse to ponder….

Romans 5. 17:
For if by the transgression (“trespass”- overstepping a boundary – same word in Eph. 2:5 – “dead in trespasses” and in 2:1 “dead in overstepping a boundary and missing the mark) of the (definite article) one (Adam), death reigned (active tense) through the one, much more (“in a greater degree”) those who receive (present active) the abundance (“superabundance”) of grace and of the gift (“gratuity”) of righteousness will reign (future tense) in (“en” – a fixed position in time, place, or state) life (“zoe”) through the One (the second adam), Jesus Christ.”  – (Reigning in the life to come as opposed to death in the life to come.)

Rom 5:20  And the Law came in that the transgression might increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,

Rom 5:21  that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
