Abstract
This project examines the translation debate over the seven occurrences of pistis Christou in Paul's letters. It seeks to answer this question through a simple, exegetical inquiry into the meaning of pistis in Romans 3-4 and Galatians 2-3. Pistis is examined because its meaning is the heart of the debate. By looking at Paul's use of pistis in the surrounding context ofsix of the seven occurrences of pistis Christou, this project expands the evidence for a proper translation. The outcome of this study is that Paul understands pistis to mean, "human believing" and therefore, pistis Christou means, "faith in Christ."
