Rom 8 - Give Life to Mortal Bodies
Feb 23, 2014
Ed Stevens
We study three uses of the word "body" (Gk SOMA) which are found in Romans chapter eight, verses 10, 11, and 13. When Paul said their "body is dead because of sin" (Rom 8:10), he meant that their bodies were mortal (subject to death, because of sin). Paul said that at the Parousia God would "give life to your [plural] mortal bodies [plural]" (Rom 8:11). Since the dead were disembodied, this means that the living and remaining saints were the ones who had their mortal bodies changed into immortal bodies at the Parousia. Then Paul exhorts individual saints (not a collective body) to "put to death [mortify] the deeds of the body" (Rom 8:13). This exhortation would be absurd if it was given to a collective body.
