    Your working definitions of ‘righteousness’, and ‘justification’ are what your ‘perspective on Paul’ completely hinges upon. If nothing else, the NPP has called us to reconsider these concepts, and the ‘baggage’ we bring to these terms.

    It isnt like we use words like ‘faith’, ‘justification’, and ‘righteousness’ often outside of the ‘church’… And the semantic range for these english terms must be proved to be the same as the biblical authors’ conceptualizations of these terms to claim that these terms mean ‘XXX’ without further nuance.

      Davey, what lexical merit do we have to “reconsider” these concepts?
