- Righteousness which is of the Law = own righteousness = Self Righteousness
- Self Righteousness is a reward
- God’s Righteousness is a Gift
New King James Version (NKJV)
2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
5 For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, “The man who does those things shall live by them.”[a]
