Chris Tilling defends NTW’s reading of 2 Corinthians 5:21. I, like Chris, have arrived at the conviction that Wright’s reading is the most natural one for a variety of reasons. Wright’s reading of the passage can be found here. I am not sure exactly when Wright arrived at this position, he still held a more traditional reading of the text in this article on justification from the beginning of the 1980s (see the context of footnote 6). The argument against limiting the reference to Paul and his ministry is made by such as Richard Hays, who is otherwise sympathetic to Wright’s reading (see footnote 5 of this article).
