Abstract :
The concise antithetical parallelism in Romans 8,10bc is impressive but its interpretation remains difficult. The future physical death is anticipated, as it were in 10b. The human spirit in 10c appears to be empowered by the Holy Spirit; the noun 'life' means life-giving; and 'because of righteousness' probably refers to God’s already given gift, not to the believers’ moral conduct in the future.
