Righteousness through Faith Revealed

21 But now, apart from the law, the righteousness of God has been revealed, being testified about by the law and the prophets-- 22 that is, the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christa to all who believe. For [there] is no distinction, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by his grace, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God made publicly available as the mercy seatb through faith in his blood, for a demonstration of his righteousness, because of the passing over of previously committed sins, 26 in the forbearance of God, for the demonstration of his righteousness in the present time, so that he should be just and the one who justifies the [person] by faithc in Jesus. 27 Therefore, where [is] boasting? It has been excluded. By what kind of law? Of works? No, but by a lawd of faith. 28 For we consider a person to be justified by faith apart from the works of the law. 29 Or [is God] the God of the Jews only? [Is he] not also [the God] of the Gentiles? Yes, also of the Gentiles, 30 since God [is] one, who will justify {those who are circumcised}e by faith and {those who are uncircumcised}f through faith. 31 Therefore, do we nullify the law through faith? May it never be! But we uphold the law.
