Abstract Despite numerous studies on Rom 7:7-25, the question of the identity of the speaking egô is still quite debated — some would say to no avail. Rooted in the background of a stimulating recent article (Doutre, 2005), this paper focuses on new interpretive trends suggested by narrative analysis. Using a previous structure analysis as a hermeneutical framework, it gathers narrative elements within the pericope concerning time, speech levels, the characterization of the ego, and the latter's understanding of Sin's machination vs. the purpose of the Law. Some conclusions are then drawn about the "nonsense" of trying to identify the ego and the reasons why this problem should be solved through the question of the act of reading itself.
