The Purpose of This Book

30 (A)Now Jesus did many other signs (B)in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 (C)but these are written so that you may (D)believe that Jesus is the Christ, (E)the Son of God, and that by believing (F)you may have life (G)in his name.

Justified by Faith

15 We ourselves are Jews by birth and not (A)Gentile sinners; 16 yet we know that (B)a person is not justified[a] by works of the law (C)but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, (D)because by works of the law no one will be justified.

Footnotes

  1. Galatians 2:16 Or counted righteous (three times in verse 16); also verse 17

For (A)we are the circumcision, (B)who worship (C)by the Spirit of God[a] and (D)glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh— (E)though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also. If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more: (F)circumcised on the eighth day, (G)of the people of Israel, (H)of the tribe of Benjamin, (I)a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, (J)a Pharisee; (K)as to zeal, (L)a persecutor of the church; (M)as to righteousness under the law,[b] blameless. But (N)whatever gain I had, (O)I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of (P)the surpassing worth of (Q)knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I (R)have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having (S)a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but (T)that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— 10 (U)that I may know him and (V)the power of his resurrection, and (W)may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 that by any means possible I may (X)attain the resurrection from the dead.
