Sola Scriptura Ablative or Nominative Case?

Is this correct?

"The adjective (sola) and the noun (scriptura) are in the ablative case rather than the nominative case

Is a macron required in order to be in the ablative case?

Yes, it is an ablative phrase meaning "By scripture alone". Macrons are not part of the Latin language, but used only by editors to clarify vowel quantity for textbooks. If you like: Sōlā Scriptūrā.
