From the Galatians I have selected one problem that baffled me almost daily as I was translating and that seems to me fundamental enough to warrant our close scrutiny here, that is, the distinction and the analogy between justice and righteousness. For behind both these words in English is one word in Luther's Latin, justitia, as there is one word for both in Greek and in Hebrew.
--Jaroslav Pelikan, A Study of Luther's Galatians
It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of Kings is to search things out.
It is our privilege as human beings created in God's image to ponder, consider, explore, and puzzle over the relationship between righteousness and justice in this world.
