Thus Christ did not end the law--period! In spite of the legalism in His and Paul's day and in spite of the prevailing idea of seeking righteousness by means of the law among the Jews, the apostle is not flatly declaring that Christ ended the law. It is the care of the writer to make this clear. It is also the intention of the writer to make clear what "law” in Romans 10:4 and in what sense Christ ended that law. Our investigation will Deal in depth with the words Τ́ελας and νόμος, bringing in δικουοσ́ννγ and πίστις as they shed light on our key phrase, "CHRIST THE END OF THE LAW.” We will deal with the context of Romans 10:4; the Pauline corpus; other passages of New and Old Testament; the opinions of other interpreters. Finally, there will be a concluding statement.
