Abstract Romans 8:14-17 bears witness to an outstanding privilege conferred by the Holy Spirit: "Sons of God!", "Heirs of God!" Examining the development of these family symbols in the following section (18-30), Samuel BÉNÉTREAU argues that, without ignoring the decidedly eschatological frame of chapter 8 as a whole, these verses are concerned with the actual life of the sons of God in the world, with its many limitations and weaknesses, and that the family symbols do not disappear but grow richer. To the topics introduced in 14-17 (liberation, adoption, prayer) are added the images of child-birth and of the gathering of many brothers around a glorious first-born son. The considerations on prayer (26-27) and on the generosity of God toward those who love him (28) can also be read within the context of the father-son relationship.
