comment Why is δεδικαίωται translated “freed” in many English versions?
@Susan - The body of Jesus died on the cross because of imputed sin. That appears to be the context of Romans 6:6 - that is, the body of Jesus is in immediate view. Our bodies today are "alive" but they are to be considered "dead" to sin because of our union with Christ. The body of Christ died to sin (or we could say that sin "did justice" in precipitating his death). Since we are united to him, our earthly bodies are "dead" to sin through him, and at the same time "alive" to God, because Jesus not only died because of sin, but rose from the dead (and we are in union with him).

comment Paul rebukes Peter in Galatians: short and sweet or speech?
Acts 15:34 is actually an insertion from a later manuscript. Thus, in order for the reader to see a gap of time between Acts 15:33 and Acts 15:35, there was the insertion of the phrase,"But it seemed good to Silas to remain there." Silas was the one who accompanied Paul when Barnabas parted ways with Paul. Thus between Acts 15:33 and Acts 15:35 there was a gap of time in which Peter had to travel to Antioch to clarify matters regarding the role of Jewish Law in Christian living. It was at this time that Paul confronted Peter and Barnabas publicly, for which Barnabas was less than appreciative.

comment Paul rebukes Peter in Galatians: short and sweet or speech?
Hi, Jack. Could you fit Barnabas into this picture? Barnabas and Paul had parted ways because of their sharp disagreement over John Mark (Acts 15:38). This break-up occurred right after the confrontation with Peter (Acts 15:35). That is, Barnabas was aligned with Peter when Paul confronted Peter (and Barnabas) in Antioch. Could the sharp disagreement over John Mark therefore have had more to do with Paul's confrontation with Peter and Barnabas? In other words, could Barnabas's sharp disagreement with Paul stem from his own indignation of public correction (and perceived humiliation) from Paul?
