Is Wright Right? Part 5

Posted: June 2, 2009 in Uncategorized

The last point of contention concerning N.T. Wright’s work is his assertion that whenever we read “the righteousness of God” in Scripture, the inspired author is not referring to a sinner’s right standing before God thanks to double imputation, but to God’s own covenant faithfulness.

Wright makes a strong argument apart from the text and the lexicon but when one pushes in to the Biblical text it is difficult to find the term righteousness anywhere near the term covenant.  Now, this is not a knock out punch but it is evidence that weighs against Wright’s thesis and it should be prayerfully considered.

More later.
