Gal 2:15–16

2:15, 16 These verses are central in Galatians. Paul’s point is that everyone (circumcised Jew as well as uncircumcised Gentile) is placed in a right relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ alone. The words “righteousness,” “righteous,” “justify,” and “justification” in the New Testament are all from the same Greek root and have related meanings.
