"Two Kinds of Righteousness" (~1519)
Martin Luther: Selections from his Writings
Edited with an Introduction by John Dillenberger
Anchor Books, 1962

Thesis: The two forms of righteousness--alien and proper--are intimately connected and necessarily sequential.

I. Alien righteousness is ours because, by grace through faith, Christ himself is ours. This alien righteousness is the source of our proper righteousness.

II. Proper righteousness is the fruit of alien righteousness and is a manner of life that imitates Christ (Phil 2:5-6) our of love for Christ.
