Chapter Summary

In Rom 6:1-7:25, Paul deals with believers' life in two realms with regard to the relationship among grace, sin, and the law: e.g., a relationship between grace and sin (Rom 6:1-14), among sin, the law, and grace (Rom 6:15-7:6), and between sin and the law (Rom 7:7-25). Rom 6:1-7:25 can be regarded as a new section because of its conspicuous diatribal style. God and Jesus are mentioned as those who affect the condition of Paul and his interlocutors. As the one who died on the cross and was resurrected, Jesus is described as the ground of believers' transfer into the new salvific realm and their life in it. According to Paul, Jesus' death and resurrection signify his (Jesus) transfer from one realm of sin and death to another realm of God (v. 10), so that Jesus is no longer under the power of death (v. 9).

Keywords: diatribal interaction; God; Jesus' resurrection; Paul's argument; Rom 6:1-14; Rom 6:1-7:25; salvific realm
