WHY THE FAITH OF CHRIST?
In Galatians 2:16 and 20, many translations render these two verses as “…faith in Jesus Christ” and “…faith in the Son of God.” However, in the Greek text of the New Testament, the word for ‘in’ is missing and the words faith and Christ are in the genitive case for both nouns which means that the faith is originated and possessed by Christ and not man. This is very important since it says literally from the New Testament Greek text that one is justified by Christ’s faith (understood that this is justification unto salvation - see Isaiah 53:11, Romans 4:25, 5:16,18, Galatians 3:8). To translate this as being justified by one’s faith in Christ is very wrong and follows the common free will salvation method that is very popular today and does not give credit to Christ’s faithfulness in going to the cross for all those who He came to seek and save. The phrase “faith of” is found also in Romans 3:22, Galatians 3:22, Ephesians 3:12, Colossians 2:12 and James 2:1, The King James Version has these verses correct while other versions like the New King James, New International Version, English Standard Version and New American Standard Version do not (except for the NKJV for James 2:1).
