Those Declared Righteous Are Reconciled
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:6 -

For while we were still helpless, at the right time, Christ died for the ungodly.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:7 -

For rarely will someone die for a just person ​— ​though for a good person perhaps someone might even dare to die.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:8 -

But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

How much more then, since we have now been declared righteous by his blood, will we be saved through him from wrath.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:10 -

For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, then how much more, having been reconciled, will we be saved by his life.

Death through Adam and Life through Christ
(Gen 3:1–19 )
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:12 -

Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, in this way death spread to all people, because all sinned.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:13 -

In fact, sin was in the world before the law, but sin is not charged to a person’s account when there is no law.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:14 -

Nevertheless, death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who did not sin in the likeness of Adam’s transgression. He is a type of the Coming One.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:15 -

But the gift is not like the trespass. For if by the one man’s trespass the many died, how much more have the grace of God and the gift which comes through the grace of the one man Jesus Christ overflowed to the many.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:16 -

And the gift is not like the one man’s sin, because from one sin came the judgment, resulting in condemnation, but from many trespasses came the gift, resulting in justification.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:17 -

Since by the one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:18 -

So then, as through one trespass there is condemnation for everyone, so also through one righteous act there is justification leading to life for everyone.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:19 -

For just as through one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so also through the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:20 -

The law came along to multiply the trespass. But where sin multiplied, grace multiplied even more

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:21 -

so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace will reign through righteousness, resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
