  • Mark Mastrogiovanni on Romans 5
    Romans 3:10 says there is none righteous no not one but

    Luke 1 says Zechariah and Elisabeth were

    righteous. How does one reconcile those 2

    verses?

    Mark,

    What this means is they (Zachariah and Elisabeth) were Torah observant. What that means is when they committed an act of sin, they would bring their sacrifice according to the requirements of the law, and that's what it means by keeping the ordinances blameless.



    It doesn't mean that they were sinless. It just means that they did everything according to the Law. They were Torah observant and therefore they were righteous according to as the Torah is concerned. So as far as character you couldn't get two people that were more in line with the righteousness of the Torah than these two.

    its means on your own you can not make yourself righteous but by Gods mercy he has made us righteous.This is clearly done at the cross by the blood of Jesus.

    21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

    22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

    26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be jusBut now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
