The following is the ninth weekâ€™s lesson after a week off. We review the key terms of 3:21-25a and then cover 3:25b-31.Â God demonstrates is just by giving us salvation as a gift of faith.
Romans 3:21Â But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,Â 22Â even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference;Â 23Â for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,Â 24Â being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,Â 25Â whom God set forthÂ asÂ a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,Â 26Â to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.Â 27Â WhereÂ isÂ boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith.Â 28Â Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.Â 29Â OrÂ is HeÂ the God of the Jews only?Â Is HeÂ not also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also,Â 30Â sinceÂ there isÂ one God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.Â 31Â Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law.
