Romans 9:5 - cjab and brianrw discussion

Steven Avery

Both are partially right.

Here is one wonderful word-order point from cjab.

Second you've overlooked that if Paul had intended to say (as you suggest), "Christ according to the flesh is God above all," then Paul's meaning is really "Christ is God according to the flesh and above all". Thus he would have written "Χριστὸς ὁ ὢν Θεὸς τὸ κατὰ σάρκα καὶ ἐπὶ πάντων."
