Paul treats justice arising from the Law and from faith in Rom 10. In 10:6-8, he allows justice from faith to quote Deuteronomy as evidence from the Scriptures. First of all, it refers to Deut 8:17 or 9:4, two acute texts on the theology of justification in the Old Testament. These texts prepare an understanding of the three quotations which Paul extracts from Deut 30:12-14 explaining each in a Christological manner. If read in the context of the entire chapter 30, particularly in the perspective of the circumcision of Israel's heart by God in 30:6, they document that justification through faith corresponds to the witness of the Old Testament.

In 1903, a number of articles were published which criticized Archbishop Kohn. One exception appeared, however, when Josef Svatopluk Machar criticized his opponents. Theodor Kohn resigned in Rome in 1904 and then settled in Ehrenhausen (Steiermark). J. S. Machar visited Kohn in Ehrenhausen in 1909. This visit did not remain unnoticed and aroused the interest of the Archdiocese of Olomouc and of the Holy See in Rome. Machar promised to publish nothing about this visit and about Kohn, "except from the perspective of history". He released his reminiscences of Kohn in 1927.
