Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:3 - And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:4 - and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Christ in Our Place

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:6 - For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:7 - For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:8 - But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:9 - Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

Death in Adam, Life in Christ
(Gen. 3:1–19 )

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:12 - Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:13 - (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:14 - Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:15 - But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:16 - And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:17 - For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:18 - Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:19 - For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:20 - Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 5:21 - so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
