About the eBook :-
2 CORINTHIANS 5:21 poses several problems for the interpreter; I shall here focus on one in particular. What does Paul mean when he says “For our sake he [God] made him [Christ] to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
The modern debate has reflected Luther’s wrestling in several ways. The majority position until comparatively recently, expounded classically by R. Bultmann, H. Conzelmann, and C. E. B. Cranfield, was that the genitive denoted the origin of the status which humans then possessed as the result of God’s gracious action in Christ.
