About This Book
In this close textual analysis Badenas uses the term 'telos' as his starting point to delve into a closer examination of the Greek-speaking ancient world. The study divides into three key sections: a history of exegesis, a lexical study of telos, and an exegetical study of Rom 10: 4. This final part enables an in-depth analysis of the place and role of Rom 10: 4 within Romans 9: 11, and, in turn, of Romans 9: 11 within Paul's argument more generally. In so doing, Badenas is able to offer a more informed judgement of the use of the statement 'Christ is the end of the law, ' contributing insightfully to an abundance of material which proclaims the statement without acknowledgement of its greater context.
