Also, it seems to me that Paul directly links DIKAIW with APOLUTRWSIS in
Rom. 3:24. Possibly for Paul, justification and redemption are related
concepts or are like different sides of the same coin, so that in Rm
6:7, Paul may well have had "Freed" in mind, though not a freedom
independent from justification.
