The Gospel and God's Righteousness

Without the righteousness of God, there is no gospel! If God merely passed over sin, he would not be God at all. This is one reason why many scholars have called Romans 3:21–26 the center of the book of Romans and why D. A. Carson has even called it the "Center of the Whole Bible."[1] In this passage we find that the good news of the gospel stands firmly upon the righteousness of God.
