“They are now justified
By God’s grace
Through the redemption
That is in Christ Jesus.”
δικαιούμενοι δωρεὰν τῇ αὐτοῦ χάριτι διὰ τῆς ἀπολυτρώσεως τῆς ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ·
Paul said that they are now justified freely (δικαιούμενοι δωρεὰν) by God’s grace (τῇ αὐτοῦ χάριτι) through the redemption (διὰ τῆς ἀπολυτρώσεως) that is in Christ Jesus (τῆς ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ). Paul said that God’s grace freely justified all people through the redemption of the Christ, the Messiah, Jesus. God was graciously allowing everyone to be righteous or justified because Jesus Christ has redeemed them or brought them back from the slavery of sin. Just as God had redeemed the Israelites from Egypt and captivity from Babylon, this was now a universal redemption for all humans from the slavery of sin. Do you believe that you can be saved from sin?
