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.

Discussion for Romans 10

  • Jonathan Timmons
    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved is the first part of it. This chapter expressed to call on the name of the lord/confess it. This means that you have transformed. Transformation is a total turn of events in your life. This means to give up your old ways and put on the new. This means to not go back and do what you were doing.

    Bud on 3-'17, Rom.10:8-9; I gave you scripture, which you thanked me for, but said you would serve God your way. There's no scripture in God's word that allows us 'our' way; One has to diligently search His Word for His truth. If one takes just vs. 9

    The book of Romans was written to the church in Rome, but not the one that is predominant there now. This EARLY church was established after Acts 2:38 was preached by Peter. The ch. in Rome had already gone thru Acts 2:38; this letter is an 'epistle', which simply means letter, a letter of further instruction for their life long walk with Jesus. V. 9 refers to DAILY acknowledging Him in prayer.
