Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:4


10:4 For Christ is the end of the law - The scope and aim of it. It is the very design of the law, to bring men to believe in Christ for justification and salvation. And he alone gives that pardon and life which the law shows the want of, but cannot give. To every one - Whether Jew or gentile, treated of, #Ro 10:11|, &c. That believeth - Treated of, #Ro 10:5|.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:4


Ro 10:4 For Christ [is] the end of the law for righteousness. The meaning is that the whole law pointed to Christ, and his righteousness. They were its object. Yet the Jews clung to the law, and refused to believe upon Christ, in whom the law met its fulfillment. To every one that believeth. As long as the Jews remained in unbelief, they were cut off from Christ. He who believes submits to God's plan of righteousness.

    1 TIMOTHY 6:3. If any man teach otherwise and -- CONSENT NOT -- to wholesome words even the words of our LORD JESUS CHRIST and to the doctrine which is according to godliness --6:4-- he is proud knowing nothing -- ....... 6:6 but godliness with contentment is great gain

    The End of the Law, The End of Condemnation for those that Believe. There is no Law or Way or Works or Character to make you Righteous. Only Simple Faith.
  • Christian
    Truly Christ is the end of the law...., but worries me how men still hold unto the law and are boldly claiming to be law keepers.And the scriptures said ; for by grace are we saved. Through faith not of works least any man should boast.our salvation began in faith and must be completed in on the finished work of Christ
  • A disciple
    "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." Romans 10:4 Christ is the thing aimed at, the whole point, the sum and substance of the Law's intended meaning and its goal to show us what kind of people we are supposed to be from the beginning. NOT the end, as in it no longer is in effect or has any more right to exist because if we think we can say, that there is no more Law of God, then we might as well say that He has denied Himself and His own Nature which is impossible. The Law teaches us the character and nature of God, in whose image we are made. The Law will be fully enforced under the reign of Christ, and we will rule the Nations by His Law. The Word of God is, that the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the golry of the LORD as the waters cover the sea, and that all Nations shall one day rejoice how there is no Law so righteous as God's Law. And until the Lord returns to set up His kingdom and put away every wicked mouth against Him, that Scripture has yet to be fulfilled.

    Christ is the the thing aimed at, the whole point, that which the whole law was intended to show from the beginning. NOT the end, as in it no longer is in effect or has any more right to exist because if we think we can say, that there is no more Law of God, then we might as well say that He has denied Himself and His own Nature which is impossible.
