Sin and Death in the Theology of Paul

(p.112) 6 Sin and Death in the Theology of Paul
The Transmission of Sin

Pier Franco Beatrice

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines whether Paul really did teach a doctrine of original sin; and if Augustine was right in vigorously answering the question in the affirmative, and with him the later Latin tradition in its entirety. It argues that Augustine was wrong in trying to attribute to Paul his own views. While Augustine understood perfectly Paul's teaching on the universality of sin, he attempted to derive from Rom 5:12ff. more than the text allows when he read into it the concept of original sin.

Keywords:   original sin, St. Augustine, Paul, Pelagians, sin, universality
