That a man
Apart from the works
Prescribed by the law.”
λογιζόμεθα γὰρ δικαιοῦσθαι πίστει ἄνθρωπον χωρὶς ἔργων νόμου.
Paul said that we hold (λογιζόμεθα) that a man (ἄνθρωπον) is justified (γὰρ δικαιοῦσθαι) by faith (πίστει) apart from the works prescribed by the law (χωρὶς ἔργων νόμου). Paul left little doubt. We are made holy or justified by faith and not from the works in the law of Moses. One had to be faithful to Jesus, then they would be justified. The law was not that necessary, since salvation was separate from the law. How strong is your faith in Jesus Christ?
