Belief in Jesus Christ (Rom 3:22)

“The righteousness of God

Through faith

In Jesus Christ

Is for all

Who believe.

There is no distinction.”

δικαιοσύνη δὲ Θεοῦ διὰ πίστεως Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, εἰς πάντας τοὺς πιστεύοντας· οὐ γάρ ἐστιν διαστολή·

Paul said that the righteousness of God (δικαιοσύνη δὲ Θεοῦ) through faith in Jesus Christ (διὰ πίστεως Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ) is for all who believe (εἰς πάντας τοὺς πιστεύοντας).  There is no distinction (οὐ γάρ ἐστιν διαστολή).  Only the Pauline letters used this word διαστολή, that means a separation, a difference, or a distinction.  Paul repeated that faith in Jesus Christ, not just Jesus but the anointed one, the Christ, the Jewish Messiah, brings the righteousness of God to all who believe.  No longer is there a distinction between the Jew with the law and the gentile without the law, although the origin of the Christ Messiah is from Judaism.  Do you have faith in Jesus Christ?
