This booklet seeks to reply to the subsequent query: how did the doctrine of justification fare 100 years after Paul’s demise (c. advert 165)? This booklet argues that Paul’s view of justification by means of religion is found in the second one century, a thesis that fairly demanding situations T. F. Torrance’s long-held inspiration that the Apostolic Fathers deserted this doctrine (The Doctrine of Grace within the Apostolic Fathers, 1948). within the wake of Torrance’s paintings there was a common consensus that the early fathers endorsed works righteousness against Paul’s trust that somebody is justified prior to God by means of religion by myself, yet second-century writings don't help this declare. each one writer examined—Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Epistle to Diognetus, Odes of Solomon, and Justin Martyr—contends that religion is the single helpful prerequisite for justification, no matter if they do point out the significance of virtuous residing.
This is the 1st significant examine at the doctrine of justification within the moment century, therefore filling a wide lacuna in scholarship. With the copious quantities of analysis being carried out on justification, it truly is alarming that no paintings has been performed on how the 1st interpreters of Paul got considered one of his trademark doctrines. it really is assumed, wrongly, that the fathers have been both bored with the doctrine or that they misunderstood the Apostle. Neither of those is the case. This publication is well timed in that it enters the fray of the justification debate from a overlooked vantage aspect.
