Short quote from Leander E. Keck

“The correlation between Jesus’ obedience and God’s rectitude [i.e. righteousness] implies that what Christ did and what God did are two sides of the same event. Consequently Paul could assert that ‘God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinner Christ died for us' (Rom 5:8).”
