In view of the immediately preceding 29 (hOPWS MH KAUCHSHTAI PASA SARX
ENWPION TOU QEOU), I think it has to be GOD.

On the contrary, I think that DIKAIOSUNH TE KAI hAGIASMOS KAI APOLUTRWSIS,
inasmuch as they are nominative, must be construed with EGENHQH as
additional subjects. I think NET has it right: Christ Jesus became all
these things "for us."
