NOTES SECTION EIGHT: Slide 7: Do these two verses contradict other sections of Romans? Why would Paul declare himself to be of the flesh and wonder about being delivered from the flesh whereas this appears contrary to Rom 6:6, 14, 18, 22? Rom 6:6 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might  be done away with, [ a ]  that we should no longer be slaves to sin— Rom 6:14 14 For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under  grace. Rom 6:22 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God,  the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. Slide 8: So who is the “I “ in Rom 7:14 and 24ff? Slide 9: Several options have been mentioned. The traditional (old fashioned) view [something found in your commentary as well] is that Paul is speaking of himself, Paul the Christian. Many Christians find this helpful as they do not feel alone in their struggle with sin. However, what must one then do with Romans chapter 6? Some “far out” option that has been offered is that the “I” is an impersonation of Israel. Paul then speaks in terms of Israel for the sake of argument.
