Introduction
 
Many regard the book of Romans as a ³compendium of Christian doctrine.´

Romans isan articulate exposition of the concepts presented in Corinthian letters and in Galatians.Interestingly, there are omissions of subjects considered normative for Pauline thought: thereturn of Jesus, the afterlife, and the situation of the church to which his letter is addressed.

  Nonetheless, the apostle Paul articulately presents detailed treatments of justification,reconciliation, grace, mercy, and the application of these concepts.This exegetical paper focuses on Romans 5:12-17, a passage in the center of Paul¶s presentation of justification through Christ. After discussing the background of the letter to theRomans, along with the context of the passage receiving treatment, the core of this project is acommentary on Romans 5:12-17 that ultimately demonstrates the inexpressible power of the freegift of grace offered by God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ. Juxtaposing the results of Adam¶s decision of rebellion and Christ¶s decision of obedience, Romans 5:12-17 establishes the blessing of a right standing with the Father to all who answer the call to follow Christ.
