The Tenses of Romans 6:1-2 May 14, 2007

Posted by roberttalley in Romans.

” Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?…How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?”

“Continue” and “live” are active future tense verbs that are used synonymously in these verses. “Died” refers to a definite event that happened once in the past (second aorist). Obviously, death to sin precludes the possibility of living habitually (continuing) in sin.
