Galatians 2:15-21Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
Even We Jews Are Declared Righteous By Faith In Christ, Not By Works of The Law
15 We[a]are Jews by nature, and not sinners from the Gentiles. 16 But knowing that a person[b] is not declared-righteous by works of the Law except[c] through faith in Jesus Christ, even we believed in Christ Jesus, in order that we might be declared-righteous by faith in Christ and not by works of the Law, because by works of the Law no flesh will be declared-righteous.
And We Died To The Law As a Rule of Life, And Now Live By Faith In The Son of God
17 But if [d] while seeking to be declared-righteous in Christ, we also ourselves were found to be sinners[e], is then Christ a minister of sin[f]? May it never be! 18 For if I am building again these[g]things which I tore-down[h], I am demonstrating[i] myself to be a transgressor. 19 For through the Law I died to the Law in order that I might live to God. I have been crucified-with Christ! 20 And I no longer am living, but Christ is living in me. And what I am now[j] living in the flesh[k], I am living by[l] faith in the Son of God— the One having loved me and handed Himself over for me. 21 I am not setting-aside[m] the grace of God! For if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died without-a-reason!
Galatians 2:15Verses 15-21 may still be part of Paul’s quotation of what he said that day; or it may be his present explanation of that event to the Galatians.
