Abstract

This commemorative lecture deals with the fundamental doctrine of the Reformation that was of prime importance in the oeuvre of Willie Jonker i. e. the doctrine of justification. The article highlights the criteriolocal (respectively: ecumenical) character of this doctrine. In the process special attention is paid to the Greek expression pistis Christou. The pivotal role of this doctrine with regard to the unity of the church, which occupied Jonker’s thinking for many decades, is indicated.
