I should have written Rom 3.21 as her primary text. Those who are
interested in Jervis' argument can simply read her article (or email me

by which the Law and the prophets [both] testify. But Righteousness, that
is God, [is now revealed] through faith in Jesus Christ {or *faithfulness
of Jesus Christ*} to all who believe, for there is no distinction. . .
