Bible Commentary for Romans 3:31

Wesley's Notes for Romans 3:31


3:31 We establish the law - Both the authority, purity, and the end of it; by defending that which the law attests; by pointing out Christ, the end of it; and by showing how it may be fulfilled in its purity.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 3:31


Ro 3:31 Do we then make void the law? Do we make it useless through "the faith"; i.e., through the Gospel? (the article is found before "faith" in the Greek). We establish the law. Rather, "law" (the article is not found in the Greek). Law is confirmed and rendered sacred, when its just demands are met by the suffering of the Son of God himself.

Discussion for Romans 3:31

  • Anonymous on Romans 3:31
    Our very need for grace is an admission that the law still stands When we reach out and by faith take a hold of grace we are establishing the fact that the law still stands If the law were voided we would have no need for grace Recently there was the story on the news of a policeman who pulled a young man over for having the registration on his car expired The man admitted he was wrong but told the policeman that he had no money to renew the registration He had to choose between feeding his children and registering his vehicle The policeman gave him a ticket and left The man opened the ticket and found where the policeman had put in a hundred dollar bill to pay his fine and to renew his registration By paying for the man s ticket grace the policeman established the fact that the law that says your registration needs to be current was still in effect Grace was shown to the man by paying the man s debt that the law required thus establishing the fact that the law was in effect
