“But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:15 Yet not - St. Paul now describes the difference between Adam and Christ; and that much more directly and expressly than the agreement between them. Now the fall and the free gift differ, In amplitude, #Rom 5:15|. He from whom sin came, and He from whom the free gift came, termed also the gift of righteousness, differ in power, #Rom 5:16|. The reason of both is subjoined, #Rom 5:17|. This premised, the offence and the free gift are compared, with regard to their effect, #Rom 5:18|, and with regard to their cause, #Rom 5:19|.
Ro 5:15 But not as the offence, so also [is] the free gift. While Adam is a type of Christ, there is a great difference. One kills, the other makes alive. "If through the sins of the one the many (the world of mankind) died", through the gracious gift of God, through one man, Jesus Christ, life has been given to the many. All will be raised at the last day.
