Romans 13:13-14
  • let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy.

Romans 1:17

For in it the righteousness of God

is revealed through faith for faith;

as it is written,

“The one who is righteous will live by faith.”

justification by faith
Justification by Faith

We know that a person is justified not by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ…because no one will be justified by the works of the law. (Gal 2:16)

paul s negative comments about the law
Paul’s negative comments about the law

All who rely on the works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not observe and obey all the things written in the book of the law.” (Gal 3:10)

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law. (Gal 3:13)

For the law brings wrath; but where there is no law, neither is there violation. (Rom 4:14-15)

Christ is the end of the law. (Rom 10:4)

paul s positive statements about the law
Paul’s positive statements about the law

It is not the hearers of the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but the doers of the law who will be justified (Rom 2:13)

The law is holy, and the commandment is holy and just and good. (Rom 7:12)

Is the law then opposed to the promises of God? Certainly not! (Gal 3:21)

What advantage has the Jew? What is the value of circumcision? Much in every way! (Rom 3:1)

Galatians 1:11-17

was especially eager for my ancestral

traditions. But when God, who chose me

while in my mother’s womb and called me

through his grace, thought it right to reveal his

Son in me, so that I might proclaim him among

the nations,….

Philippians 3:2-9

…circumcised on the eighth day, by virtue of

belonging to the people of Israel, from the

Tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew born of Hebrews, with

regard to Torah --a Pharisee, with regard to zeal--

a persecutor of the church, in terms of righteousness

attained by (the practice of) Torah--I was blameless. But

Whatever gains had accrued to me, these I now count

as a loss because of Christ. …

the flexible pharisees
The Flexible Pharisees

R. Yosi b. Yoezer of Zereda testified that the Ayil-locust

is clean,and that the liquid that flows in the shambles

[in the Temple] is not susceptible to uncleanness; and

That he that touches a corpse becomes unclean.

And they called him “Yosi the Permitter.”

--Mishnah, Edduyot 8.4

Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing; but the commandments of God are everything.

1 Corinthians 7:19

Jesus and Justification

NRSV: I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.

PME: I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification comes through the law, then Christ died as a gift.
