Chapter Summary

In Rom. 8:1-17 Paul discusses the idea that there is no condemnation for 'those who are in Christ Jesus'. In imitation of Christ, Christians may consider themselves to be children of God, Paul sets out. Thus, the concept of the unity of Christ and the believers also underlies Paul's idea of the eschatological transformation. The unity with Christ which Christians already enjoy will be extended at the end of time so as to comprise a unity in Christ's eternal glory. In verse 5, however, the idea of the eschatological resurrection as a participation in Jesus' resurrection does come to the fore. After Jesus' coming in glory and the believers' resurrection, aIl will live forever in community with Christ. In verses 15-20 Paul supplies several additional arguments against sexual misbehaviour. All of these arguments are based on the idea that Christ and the Christians form a unity.
