Ultimately, we have faith not in Jesus, but faith with Jesus. In the re-imagined world of the parables we stand beside Jesus and trust that his world will work, that it can provide the safe place - the empire of God - that resists all other empires.
~Bernard Brandon Scott

Galatians 2:16

yet we know that a person is justified not by the works of the law but through the faith of Jesus Christ.  And we have come to believe in Christ Jesus, so that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by doing the works of the law, because no one will be justified by the works of the law. (NRSV)
