New Testament.

(Priests.) 1. Does the Epistle to the Romans seem to have been addressed mainly to Jewish or to Gentile Christians ?

2. How does this Epistle justify the definition of Original Sin as “the fault and corruption of the nature of every man”?

3. What objections to his main doctrinal positions, or erroneous inferences from them, does St. Paul himself suggest? How does he meet them severally? .

4. “I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.” Do you understand St. Paul to be describing in these words his own condition at the time at which he wrote ? Give reasons for your answer. 5. Explain :a. “ Who was delivered for our offences, and was

raised again for our justification."
b. “Through their fall salvation is come unto the

Gentiles."
C. "If thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst,

give him drink. For in so doing thou shalt

heap coals of fire on his head." 6. Translate carefully, explaining any difficulties that strike you: (α) όσοι γάρ ανόμως ήμαρτον, ανόμως και απολούνται

και όσοι εν νόμω ήμαρτον, δια νόμου κριθήσονται. (β) συμμαρτυρούσης αυτών της συνειδήσεως, και μεταξύ

αλλήλων των λογισμών ή κατηγορούντων ή και απολογουμένων.
