Romans 5:12-21

  1. What are the consequences for men and women:
    (a) of Adam’s fall into sin, and
    (b) of Christ’s ‘obedience’ or ‘act of righteousness? In what respects are the latter both similar to, and different from, the former? What ought we to recognize about the character of the benefit that becomes ours in Christ?
  2. What four ‘reigns’ are spoken of in this passage? Two of them are the sad experience of all people. How do the other two operate? What benefits do they bring? How can we enter into their enjoyment?
