BREYTENBACH, Cilliers. Creation and the revelation of God's children: Liberation of enslaved bodies. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.2, pp.71-77. ISSN 2305-0853.
In the first part of the article the role of Romans 8:18-30, within Romans 5:1-8:39, is briefly discussed. In the second part a summary of the argument of Romans 7:7-17, as presupposition for the understanding of Romans 8:18-30, is given. In the third part a close reading of Romans 8:18-30 is given, followed by concluding remarks. The article illustrates that Paul's line of thought moves from the future transformation of the believers to the transformation of the creation.
