    Romans 7:21

    Early Christian Commentary - (A.D. 100 - A.D. 325)

    Anf-02 vi.iv.iii Pg 158.1


    Anf-03 v.iv.vi.xiv Pg 4
    Sensus νοός in Rom. vii. 23.

    On this account, therefore, (does he mean to say that) the Son was sent in the likeness of sinful flesh, that He might redeem this sinful flesh by a like substance, even a fleshly one, which bare a resemblance to sinful flesh, although it was itself free from sin. Now this will be the very perfection of divine power to effect the salvation (of man) in a nature like his own.5839

    5839 Pari.

    For it would be no great matter if the Spirit of God remedied the flesh; but when a flesh, which is the very copy5840

    5840 Consimilis.

    of the sinning substance—itself flesh also—only without sin, (effects the remedy, then doubtless it is a great thing).  The likeness, therefore, will have reference to the quality5841

    5841 Titulum.

    of the sinfulness, and not to any falsity5842

    5842 Mendacium.

    of the substance. Because he would not have added the attribute “sinful,”5843

    5843


    Anf-03 v.viii.xlvi Pg 9
    Rom. vii. 17, 20, 23.

    Our members, therefore, will no longer be subject to the law of death, because they cease to serve that of sin, from both which they have been set free. “For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and through7596

    7596 Per delinquentiam: see the De Carne Christi, xvi.

    sin condemned sin in the flesh,”7597

    7597


    Anf-03 v.viii.li Pg 12
    Rom. vii. 23.

    —meaning, of course, the actual power of sinning against his will. Now he says in a previous passage (of our Epistle to the Corinthians), that “the last enemy to be destroyed is death.”7670

    7670


    Anf-01 ix.vii.xv Pg 13
    Rom. vi. 12, 13, etc.

    In these same members, therefore, in which we used to serve sin, and bring forth fruit unto death, does He wish us to [be obedient] unto righteousness, that we may bring forth fruit unto life. Remember, therefore, my beloved friend, that thou hast been redeemed by the flesh of our Lord, re-established4572

    4572 “Et sanguine ejus redhibitus,” corresponding to the Greek term ἀποκατασταθείς. “Redhibere” is properly a forensic term, meaning to cause any article to be restored to the vendor.

    by His blood; and “holding the Head, from which the whole body of the Church, having been fitted together, takes increase”4573

    4573


    Anf-03 v.viii.xlvii Pg 10
    Vers. 12, 13.

    And again:  “As ye have yielded your members servants of uncleanness, and of iniquity unto iniquity, even so now yield your members servants of righteousness unto holiness; for whilst ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things of which ye are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now, being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”7610

    Anf-02 vi.iv.iii Pg 125.1


    Anf-03 vi.vii.vi Pg 6
    John i. 17; Rom. vi. 14, 15.

    made patience her pre-eminent coadjutrix for amplifying and fulfilling the law, because that alone had been lacking unto the doctrine of righteousness. For men were of old wont to require “eye for eye, and tooth for tooth”9079

    Anf-02 vi.iv.iii Pg 159.1


    Anf-03 v.viii.xlvi Pg 8
    Ver. 2.

    —that, surely, which he previously mentioned as dwelling in our members.7595

    7595


    Anf-03 v.iv.vi.xiii Pg 48
    Compare the first part of ver. 4 with vers. 5 and 6 and viii. 2; 3.

    But, behold, he bears testimony to the law, and excuses it on the ground of sin:  “What shall we say, therefore? Is the law sin? God forbid.”5831

    5831


    Anf-01 ix.iv.ix Pg 4
    John viii. 34.

    Inasmuch, then, as He terms those “the slaves of sin” who serve sin, but does not certainly call sin itself God, thus also He terms those who serve mammon “the slaves of mammon,” not calling mammon God. For mammon is, according to the Jewish language, which the Samaritans do also use, a covetous man, and one who wishes to have more than he ought to have. But according to the Hebrew, it is by the addition of a syllable (adjunctive) called Mamuel,3367

    3367 A word of which many explanations have been proposed, but none are quite satisfactory. Harvey seems inclined to suspect the reading to be corrupt, through the ignorance and carelessness of the copyist. [Irenæus undoubtedly relied for Hebrew criticisms on some incompetent retailer of rabbinical refinements.]

    and signifies gulosum, that is, one whose gullet is insatiable. Therefore, according to both these things which are indicated, we cannot serve God and mammon.
