Death in Adam, Life in Christ

12 Therefore, just as (A)sin came into the world through one man, and (B)death through sin, and (C)so death spread to all men[a] because (D)all sinned— 13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but (E)sin is not counted where there is no law. 14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not (F)like the transgression of Adam, (G)who was a type of (H)the one who was to come.

15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for (I)many. 16 And the free gift is not like the result of that one man's sin. For (J)the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought (K)justification. 17 For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness (L)reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.

  1. Romans 5:12 The Greek word anthropoi refers here to both men and women; also twice in verse 18

45 Thus it is written, (A)“The first man Adam became a living being”;[a] (B)the last Adam became a (C)life-giving spirit. 46 But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual. 47 (D)The first man was from the earth, (E)a man of dust; (F)the second man is from heaven. 48 As was the man of dust, so also are those who are of the dust, and as is the man of heaven, (G)so also are those who are of heaven. 49 Just (H)as we have borne the image of the man of dust, (I)we shall[b] also bear the image of the man of heaven.
