Romans 8:37 (NIV) says, "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us."
All these things refers to trials, whether persecutions, or famine, or death. Against these things, Paul says, "we are more than conquerors." A conqueror is one who has victory over some city or nation, and I could understand Paul saying that there is victory over hardships and death, but what does it mean to be "more than conquerors?" Is this simply a rhetorical flourish?
