The Incarnation: An Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Incarnation of the Son of God

By Stephen T. Davis; Daniel Kendall et al. | Go to book overview

5 Romans 8: The Incarnation and Its Redemptive Impact
Jean-Noël Aletti, SJI have been asked to examine the impact of the incarnation in Romans 8. But since not all exegetes admit that Paul speaks of the incarnation in Romans 8: 3-4, it is important that we first examine very critically these verses. If Paul does not allude here to the 'becoming-human' of the Son of God, then all our reflections on the incarnation and its impact would be simply out of place. After situating the verses in their context, we will see if Paul makes an allusion to the incarnation, and if he does, what importance he gives to such an allusion.
I The Passage and Its Context
To understand the formulation of Romans 8: 3-4 we should not forget the manner in which the Apostle's reflections progress in Romans 5-8. In an earlier publication I have presented the composition of Romans 5-8, and shown that Romans 5 must be attached to Romans 6-8. Whoever wants to have exhaustive information on this question can consult what I have already defended at length elsewhere. 1 Let me recall here the outline of this subsection of Romans, and comment very briefly on it.

5: 1-11: introduction to the section;
5: 12-21: preparation for the 'argument', by a comparison (synkrisis)
