About this item

All the many different types of slaves in the Roman Empire were legally non-persons with no genealogy, says Bryant, who participated in a suspended state of death from which the only escape was literal death. He argues that the rhetoric of Paul in "Letter to the Romans" allowed slaves who were receptive to the message to conceive that dying and rising with Messiah Jesus annulled the suspended state of death attached to their lives. By participating in a ritual death with Christ, he says, slaves were no longer beholden to the legal structure that imposed identity on slaves as subjects.
