Romans 5:21 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Unto death (ἐν τῷ θανάτῳ)

Wrong. In death, as Rev. As the sphere or dominion of death's tyranny. Compare Romans 5:14, "death reigned." Some, however, explain the preposition as instrumental, by death. How much is lost by the inaccurate rendering of the prepositions. Ellicott remarks that there are few points more characteristic of the apostle's style than his varied but accurate use of prepositions, especially of two or more in the same or in immediately contiguous clauses. See Romans 3:22; Ephesians 4:6; Colossians 1:16.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord

"And now - so this last word seems to say - Adam has passed away; Christ alone remains" (Godet).
