The Gospel

“It has been said somewhere that the whole Law, according to the Jews, was given to Moses in 613 precepts, that David reduced them in the fifteenth Psalm to eleven, that Isaiah further diminished them to six, Micah to three, Isaiah in a later passage to two, but Habakkuk condensed all 613 into one,—’the just shall live by faith.’”

I got this quote from this blog piece, which goes on to point out that “the just shall live by faith” is also the summary of Paul’s explanation of the Gospel in Romans 1:16,17. Faith is the essence of our relationship with Christ.

Somewhat ironic that said blog post devolves into an argument in the comments, but alas, so goes the point.
