Hi Stephen
I think the overall theme of this conference has essentially been 'its not about you' (i.e. us). The difficulty is that Paul's christology in Romans 5-8 so informs his construal of the self that it is sometimes tricky to separate out which is being referred to at which point in the argument.

One of the biggest lessons I have learned from Douglas Campbell at Duke is to be sensitive to Christological readings of Paul. Paul certainly thinks that way (though obviously not always 100%), and we have to be attuned to this fundamental aspect of his thinking.
