This study examines the role that Adam theology played in the thinking of the apostle Paul, arguing that the double motif of glory/suffering and the figure of Adam might be a valuable hermeneutic for other key Pauline texts on suffering. For each of those texts, a three-fold procedure is followed: the identification of the interwoven themes of suffering and glory; the uncovering of the notion of the restoration of Adam's glory through righteous suffering; and the passage's contribution to the understanding of the tri-level relationship existing among the afflictions of Christ, Paul and the latter's audience.
