“God’s plan, God’s single plan, always was to put the world to rights, to set it right, to undo Genesis 3 and Genesis 11, sin and the fracturing of human society which results from that sin and shows it up in its full colours (we might almost say: Genesis 3 needs the ‘old perspective’, and Genesis 11 needs the new!): to bring about new creation, through Abraham/Israel and, as the fulfilment of the Abraham/Israel-shaped plan, through the Messiah, Jesus.”

Tom Wright, Justification: God’s Plan and Paul’s Vision (London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 2009), 78.
