Faith "in" Christ or the Faithfulness "of" Christ? Clement vs. The New Perspective on Paul

Click on the title to read an interesting rebuttal of the view that Galatians 3:22 and other passages are examples of the "subjective genitive" rather than the "objective gentive". Is Jesus Christ the object of our faith or is the "faithfulness of Christ" the proper translation? Clement, the church father, seems to have believed that Christ was the object of our faith.  See Clement vs. The New Perspective on Paul.
