Fr. Job and the Use of Scripture

Scripture in Letters - Job: Romans

Romans 5:17-19 Job

For if by one man's offence death reigned through one: much more they who receive abundance of grace, and of the gift, and of justice, shall reign in life through one Jesus Christ. Therefore, as by the offence of one, unto all men to condemnation: so also by the justice of one unto all men to justification of life. For as by the disobedience of one man, many were made sinners: so also by the obedience of one, many shall be made just." From the doctrines of the holy Fathers, I add: "As by the disobedience of one woman, the way was opened to sin and reprobation; so also by the obedience of one woman, the path to grace and salvation."
