The horizontal dimension of justification by faith

Here's a very important essay by Michael Bird on Justification by Faith and Racism.

A key quote:
To practice any form of ethnic or racial exclusion means that one either does not understand or does not believe in justification by faith.
The horizontal aspect of justification finds surprising emphasis in the NT.
