Abstract:This study utilizes the authorial audience's conceptual field provided by their Jewish and Greco-Roman context to explore Paul's metaphor of adoption and its surrounding familial language in Romans 8–9. This study seeks to establish that the use of the metaphor of adoption ([special characters omitted]) as a literary construct in Romans would aid Paul's authorial audience in the understanding of their Christian experience both in the present and at the eschaton. We seek to find support in the rhetoric of the text itself, as well as inclusions of terminology and interpretative conceptual markers that would make reading the text according to these options very natural. In the text of Romans, the term [special characters omitted] describes the manner in which God brings believers into the people of God, bestowing upon them the rights, privileges, and obligations associated with sonship. Divine adoption, a blessing first given to the Jewish remnant, is now through the fulfillment of God's covenantal faithfulness, appropriated to God's eschatological people as a whole (i.e., believers made up of both Jews and Gentiles). Paul, therefore, utilizes concepts that theologically depict Israel's unique status, while also providing interpretive markers through the surrounding familial language that would readily be read by the authorial audience against their wider Greco-Roman milieu. As a result, insight would be gained about the believer's inclusion, along with Israel's true remnant, into the eschatological people of God. God's people are thus redefined within Romans in a way that eliminates the ethnic particularities attached to inclusion and allows Gentiles and Jews to enter the family of God on an equal basis.
