Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

Romans 8:15

The spirit of adoption (pneuma uiotesiav).
See on this term uiotesia, Galatians 4:5. Both Jews and Gentiles receive this "adoption" into the family of God with all its privileges. "{Whereby we cry, Abba, Father}" (en hi krazomen Abba o pathr). See Galatians 4:6 for discussion of this double use of Father as the child's privilege.
