I'm wondering why it would be necessary to supply a verb here. It seems to
DIKAIOSUNH DE QEOU . . .
is in apposition with
DIKAIOSUNH QEOU PEFANERWTAI
in the previous verse. Thus it would read "God's righteous has appeared .
.[which righteousness of God?] -- God's righeousness through faith
Jesus Christ to all who believe."
This reading seems very natural. But I wonder if particle DE
in DIKAISUNE DE QEOU can be used to introduce a phrase that is
to be used as an apposition. Isn't DE a particle connecting a sentence
and another sentence?
