Title: Qui me délivrera de ce corps de mort? L’Esprit de vie!
Subtitle: Romains 7,24 et 8,2 comme éléments de typologie adamique
Author(s): GRAPPE, Christian
Volume: 83 Issue: 4 Date: 2002
4 Es 3,4-5 says that Adam, created with a dead body, has come to life by means of the Spirit of life. This text shows that a twofold allusion to Adam can be discerned im Rm 7,24 and 8,2, where Paul recalls the release brought about by the Spirit of Life by setting free the human being from his body of death. This proves that Paul regularly refers to Adam throughout Rm 5-8. At the same time, it is confirmed that Paul’s argument is intentionally comprehensive in that it deals with each human being and goes beyond the Jews.
