Romans 3:21-26

Leon Morris holds that this may possibly be the most important paragraph ever written:

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the Law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it – the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe.  For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood to be received by faith.  This was to show God’s righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. (ESV)
