Romans 7:1-6 In this passage Paul continues to explore the subject he introduced in chapter six. Note the three times beginning in chapter six where he asks the question, "Do you not know?" These provide a sort of outline of Paul's discussion of the believer's relationship to sin. What question is Paul addressing in these verses in chapter seven? What is the point of the illustration Paul uses? How do we need to be careful in interpreting illustrations in the Bible? What is Paul referring to by the "law" in this passage? What does Paul associate with the law in Romans? What is the believer's relationship to the law? How did this happen? What is the purpose for which this happened? What subject does Paul introduce in this passage that he will expound more fully in chapter eight? (51 min)
