Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Romans 3:21-23.


Romans 3:22

_ _ by faith of — that is, “in”

_ _ Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe — that is, perhaps, brought nigh “unto all” men the Gospel, and actually “upon all” believing men, as theirs in possession [Luther and others]; but most interpreters understand both statements” of believers as only a more emphatic way of saying that all believers, without distinction or exception, are put in possession of this gratuitous justification, purely by faith in Christ Jesus.

_ _ for there is no difference.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 3:19-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 3:22

To all — The Jews. And upon all — The gentiles That believe: for there is no difference — Either as to the need of justification, or the manner of it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 3:22

(8) Even the righteousness of God [which is] by faith of (s) Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

(8) The matter, as it were, of this righteousness is Christ Jesus apprehended by faith, and for the sake of righteousness Christ is offered to all people, as without him all people are shut out from the kingdom of God.

(s) Which we give to Jesus Christ, or which rests upon him.
