Romans 3:29-31

29 Or is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also,

30 since there is one God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.

31 Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law.

There is one God (a foundational truth of the Jews), therefore, He is God to Jews and Gentiles.

Faith doesn’t void the Law, it completes it and fulfills it.

By faith = out of faith, as opposed to “out of law”

Through faith = by means of, with no Law to be saved out of.

The Jews were justified by faith, by way of works, whereas Gentiles are justified directly by way of faith.

Christ satisfied the Law, therefore He established justification by the Laws’ demands (verse 31).
