Owen’s Argument 16g: Various Passages of Scripture - Made Righteousness
2 Cor. v. 21, “He hath made him to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
Everyone for whom Christ was made to be sin, or a sin offering, is made righteousness.
Owen correctly notes that the passage could be saying Christ was made a sin offering. As far as everyone for whom Christ was offered becoming righteousness, the verb genometha (might be made) is in the subjunctive mood, not indicative. So their becoming righteous isn’t certain, but rather uncertain. This passage just indicates the intent of the offering, not the effect.
