Chapter Summary

The conclusion to the epistle to the Romans is a major problem in textual criticism. Hort attempted a brief analysis of the language and style no thorough examination of either has been undertaken, as G.D. Kilpatrick laments in the Aland Festschrift. The intention is to see the extent to which the language and style of the doxology in Rom 16:25-27 are paralleled in or consistent with the authentic Pauline letters and the rest of the New Testament. The doxologies in Eph 3:20 and Jud 24 provide closer parallels to Rom 16:25 in that in all the dative is arthrous and refers to God. There are three indirect objects including one relative, one dative of time and no finite verb is expressed. This suggests a well-rehearsed and liturgically inspired composition possibly used in the earliest days of the church and pre-dating its addition to the epistle to the Romans.
