Righteousness by faith is the center piece of the gospel, from which every biblical doctrine derives its significance. Jesus Himself—in His life, death and resurrection—is the embodiment of righteousness by faith and thus He bears the name, “the Lord our Righteousness.” This is the truth that ignited the passionate and liberating fires of the Protestant Reformation, in the absence of which long Dark Ages trudged by. And this is the one subject that will swallow up all others with its power and glory in the final events of human history.
