Title: Romains 5,12-21
Subtitle: Logique, sens et fonction
Author(s): ALETTI, Jean-Noël
Volume: 78 Issue: 1 Date: 1997
Rom 5,12-21 - especially the ἐφ' ᾧ clause of 5,12 - has been examined so many times that one might wonder whether there is anything new to say. But not all the components of the passage have been sufficiently taken into account by exegetes, especially its structure and dynamics, the expolitio of vv. 13-14 and, last but not least, the synkrisis of vv. 15-19. Besides, not enough attention has been paid to the Biblical and Jewish parallels. Only after the interrelationship of the rhetorical and semantic elements of the passage has been adequately considered, can one see its relevance and function in the Letter to the Romans.
