Note on Justification

I’m pretty much fully in line with N.T. Wright as regards justification – namely, seeing justification as a declaration of being in the right. This makes sense of Scripture and overarching themes in the biblical narrative -placing God and his covenant faithfulness and purpose at the very center of the doctrine. Calvin seems quite close to Wright, at times, in his understanding of Torah, which is interesting and quite different than Luther’s.
