Jesus articulates the relationship between works and salvation with remarkable succinctness and simplicity that one may be excused for wondering why there has been so much controversy on the subject. "Unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and the Pharisees you will in no way enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:20). Passages like this (e.g., vv. 21--26, 43--48 par.; 7:21--23; 10:22; 18:21--35; 19:17--21 pars.; 24:13 par.; 25:34--46; Luke 10:27--28) suggest that, according to Jesus, works play an integral role in one's salvation. However we must be very clear what we mean by works and what exactly we mean by salvation.
초록/해제  
The NT makes it clear. The NT authors make a distinction between pre-conversion and post-conversion works (e.g., Eph 2:9--10). Pre-works play no role whatsoever in one's salvation. The reason is quite simple. By definition these works occur before one is in a relationship with God and therefore originate outside the realm of God's enabling power. It is precisely these kinds of works that Paul means to condemn when he says that no one will ever be justified by works of the law. They originate in the flesh and admit no one into the kingdom (Gal 5:19--21). The Pharisees exhibited these kinds of works (cf. Luke 18:11--12). The NT does speak favorably and indeed encourages post-conversion works however. These works occur after conversion and are thus produced by the Spirit of God and are indeed ordained by God (v. 10). When Jesus says for example that no one is able to enter the kingdom of God unless they have surpassing righteousness He means unless they have post-conversion works. According to Paul post-conversion works are "good" (Eph 2:10), they originate with the Spirit (Gal 5:22--23) and are necessary for attaining eternal life (Rom 2:7).
초록/해제  
The qualifier "post-conversion" is important for these works only occur after entering into a relationship with God, which in the Synoptic Gospels occurs via repentance, faith, taking up one's cross, following Jesus, etc. This means that the works themselves have no human merit since they have their source in the power of God. The enabling power of God is indeed the point of continuity between Paul and Jesus and discontinuity between Christianity and Judaism.
초록/해제  
Regarding salvation the NT word group generally refers to eschatological salvation and not a moment of time in one's personal history. This is also true of the kingdom although with both terms the present and future are inseparably linked. Hence salvation can rightly be described as "already but not yet." It is the "not yet" (or eschatological) aspect of salvation that is often in view when works are involved. Works become the focus because, being Spirit wrought they are able to verify the Spirit's presence in one's life and thus provide evidence of the "already" aspect of salvation.
