<x-charset iso-8859-1>Hi team

Back from a long absence and settling into parish life, I have an interesting
question posed on another list

"The Greek word used for trespasses in Romans 4:25 is paraptoma, an
infrequently used word. Does this have any significance as you read the
text? How might the meaning differ if Paul had, instead, used the word,
hamartia, the most commonly used word for sin?"

Any comments??

BTW. Auckland IS STILL the home of the America's cup.
