The Emergence of Sin

The Cosmic Tyrant in Romans

Matthew Croasmun

  • Unique use of contemporary philosophy of science to solve an age-old problem in biblical scholarship
  • Controversial proposal that we ought to take seriously the idea not just that we sin (make mistakes) but that we are subject to Sin's rule
  • Novel suggestion that the idea of a suprahuman tyrant not anti-scientific but, in fact, takes contemporary scientific reflection seriously
