This is a rare work on New Testament Greek if you don’t have it buy it… Here is small example; the word “sin” in the New Testament is of Latin origin however this Latin word fails to decimate between sin as quality and evil principal and sins a deeds and actions. The word sin also fails to distinguish the differences between Adam’s sin in the state of innocence before and after death enters the world.
The New Testament Greek texts clearly make this distinction using four words. 1 haramartia 2.haramartema 3.haramartano 4.paraptomea. Number one is the quality of sin from the Greek root haramara. We don’t often think of something evil having “good quality” or “the best quality” haramartia is the quality of sin, the evil principal that drives sinful deeds and actions and haramartia is the effect of death over all the creation.see Romans 8 Haramartia is the evil principal that has given rise to the wages of sin i.e. death It is NOT the deeds this is an important distinction. Number two and three are the noun and the verb respectively for the actions that proceed from number one.
Number four is uniquely used of Adam’s transgression as it is not against the Law of Moses, it is against his nature as the creation of Elohim (god) The Law comes 2513 years later to reveal the state of death and sin exampled by the evil deeds of men.
When Paul states “Sin is not imputed where there is no Law but nevertheless death reined from Adam to Moses” Sin here is not deeds it is “haramartia” and the evil principal of sin is not charged where no Law is one cannot charge a quality of action only the action itself is charged against the Law. But on account of it, haramartia, death reined even over those who did not sinned (the absolute negative in the Greek) like Adam. Adam’s sin is number four and none can ever sin like Adam, as Number one was not in the world until Adam sinned.The most common word used in the New Testament for sin is “haramartia” not the deeds but the principal of death that has passed upon all men.
Covenant theology is dealt a death blow with the correct use of the Greek words for "sin" as made clear by the Apostles us of them. Adam’s sin “paraptoma” cannot imputed under the fictional covenant of works to all mankind… only the result of it “never the less death reined from Adam to Moses" Moses is not a covenant head and if this text was proving the two federal heads in isolation according to covenant theory Paul would have stated "never the less death reined from Adam to Christ"
