Rom 12 - Bodies as Living Sacrifices
Mar 09, 2014
As Douglas Moo notes in his Romans commentary, "Romans 12:1-2 is one of the best-known passages in the New Testament." Here Paul urges the Roman saints to present their bodies as living sacrifices to God, and be transformed by a renewal of their minds. Since some of the Collective Body advocates use this text to support their resurrection view, we show why the word "bodies" (plural) cannot be referring to a collective body. We quote from two of the Collective Body advocates to clarify their position, and then bring the excellent critical analysis of Robert H. Gundry to bear on it. We explain the original development of the Collective Body view by John A. T. Robinson, and suggest a possible reason why Max King used it to build his resurrection view.
