Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author takes up a Pauline topic with some emphasis on passages in Paul's Letter to the Romans. The topic deals with aspects related to Paul's theological explications of the tradition which he received and transmitted, that "Christ died for our sins". David Aune has maintained that in Paul's Letter to the Romans "large sections of text (1:16-2:11; 2:12-4:25; 5:1-8:39: 9:1-11:36) show signs of having been developed orally during many years of Paul's preaching, teaching and debating... Paul is reusing material he had carefully honed over many years. . . ". Some further observations along these lines are made on Rom 1:18-32 and Rom 7:7-8:4 to show that an aim of Paul is to document that, although Jesus Christ was executed by crucifixion as a criminal, he did not die for his own crimes, but for ours.
