Default Romans 5:15-17

Romans 5:


15But 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.

16And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift[By One] is of many offences unto justification.

17For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ )

Whose act was more powerful ? Adam's or Christ ?

When we read these verses Paul in His gospel is showing that there was a typical correspondence between adam and Christ, but yet the parallel does show a difference in the nature of their acts and effects.

First the nature of their actions were different in that adam sinned in the most ideal and pristine of circumstances. The Lord Jesus Christ on the other hand remained pure and obedient under the worst of conditions, yet adam sinned and Christ remained righteous. Now between the Two consequences of the actions of the Two, differ somewhat in degree, notice vs 15

15 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.

Paul is saying, that the Gift [Christ and His work on the Cross] is not like the trespass [adam's transgression] Christ work being a work of Grace [Heb 2:9] and He being God Man, that what He did is way more powerful that what adam did and we in him that act of demerit. Yes his brought as consequences "death" to his offspring: Yet how much more [with no question] does the gift that flows from Grace, the effects of the God Man, overflow to the many, for their benefit..
