Thoughts on Objective Justification: Selections from Abraham Calov's Biblia Illustrata
Phetsanghane, Souksamay K.

I selected 2 Corinthians 5:18-19; Romans 3:23-24 4:25, and 5:18-19 for several reasons. First, after scouring through the works of various authors, I found that these passages kept coming up in the discussion about objective justification. Secondly, Pieper also cites Calov’s comments on Romans 4:25 to point out “the relation of Christ’s resurrection to our justification.” Thirdly, we as a conference have been doing exegetical papers on Romans for a few years now. Lastly, one of the suggested topics for a paper was “Objective / Universal Justification: Responding to the accusation that Luther did not teach objective justification as we Lutherans do today.” While this translation is not from Luther, it is from another staunch Lutheran father. For all of these reasons, it seemed that this work would be appropriate for us at our time.
