For the Barthophiles out there, here’s Karl Barth on Galatians 2:19b-20.

“The fact that I live in the faith of the Son of God, in my faith in him, has its basis in the fact that He Himself, the Son of God, first believed for me … the great work of faith has already been done by the One whom I follow in my faith, even before I believe, even if I no longer believe, in such a way that He is always, as Heb 12:2 puts it, the originator and completer of our faith … His faith is the victory which has overcome the world.”
