Abstract A tiny handful of studies have recognised that πίστις in Romans 12:3 could be rendered as something like 'stewardship', 'trusteeship', etc. This article argues that this option deserves to be more widely visited. The explanatory power of this rendering is far greater than that of other options, and the strength of its philological backing (which includes entries from Josephus) has not yet been fully appreciated. One reason this rendering has not received the hearing it deserves is that earlier studies have failed to understand how it fits whit the use of πίστις in 12:6.
