Romans 10:4

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believes.
Read Chapter 10

Clement Of Alexandria

AD 215
And they did not believe the law as prophesying, but the bare word; and they followed through fear, not through disposition and faith. "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness". For so he, who was after the law, Moses, foretold that it was necessary to hear in order that we might, according to the apostle, receive Christ, the fulness of the law.

Clement Of Alexandria

AD 215
The Jews did not understand the intention of the law and so failed to practice it. They made up their own version and thought that that was what the law intended. They had no faith in the prophetic power of the law. They followed the bare letter, not the inner meaning—fear, not faith. ..

Gennadius of Constantinople

AD 471
Christ fulfilled the law’s purpose by granting the righteousness which comes by faith in him to all those who accepted him. .

Hippolytus of Rome

AD 235
Dost thou marvel, O John, that I am not come in my dignity? The purple robe of kings suits not one in private station, but military splendour suits a king: am I come to a prince, and not to a friend? "Suffer it to be so now for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness: "I am the Fulfiller of the law; I seek to leave nothing wanting to its whole fulfilment, that so after me Paul may exclaim, "Christ is the fulfilling of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth."

Irenaeus of Lyons

AD 202
How is Christ the end of the law if he is not also the cause of it? For he who has brought in the end also created the beginning. .

John Chrysostom

AD 407
There is only one righteousness, which finds its fulfillment in Christ…. Even someone who has failed to keep the law properly will be righteous if he has Christ … but the man who does not have Christ is a stranger to the law as well.

Severian of Gabala

AD 425
This does not mean that Christ is a part of the law but rather that he is the beginning of a new life. The law has come to an end; it has ceased. .
