People's Bible Notes for Romans 3:22


Ro 3:22 Even the righteousness of God . . . by faith of Jesus Christ. The Gospel, where we are "justified by faith, and have peace with God through Jesus Christ" (Ro 5:1). All were guilty under the law, but the law and prophets pointed to forgiveness in Christ. Unto all and upon all them that believe. There is justification for every sincere believer, whether Jew or Gentile, for there is no difference between them, but not for the unbelieving impenitent.

    Psalms 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. 2 Corinthians 7:15 And his inward affection is more abundant toward you, whilst he remembereth the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling ye received him. Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

    Romans 3:30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision BY faith, and un-circumcision THROUGH faith.
    I believe this verse is referring to salvation to the Jews as his people by origin, and salvation to the Gentiles as his people by adoption. In either position, it is faith IN Christ which saves a man.
  • Doug Cutler for verse 23
    I go along with Alvis: There must be different meanings for all. That word has been used several places that if used as we use all, no one would be alive today. Or live after the end times. There is mention of being transformed instantly and not dying. All would include these if used as we do today.
