Context Readings

The Righteousness Of God Through Faith In Christ

3 For not knowing about God’s righteousness [which is based on faith], and seeking to establish their own [righteousness based on works], they did not submit to God’s righteousness. 4 For Christ is the end of the law [it leads to Him and its purpose is fulfilled in Him], for [granting] righteousness to everyone who believes [in Him as Savior]. 5 For Moses writes that the man who practices the righteousness which is based on law [with all its intricate demands] shall live by it.
