Abstract Paul, in Romans, appears inconsistent in quoting from the Law while declaring believers in Jesus to be discharged from it. This discussion suggests a resolution, first by comparing Paul's use of the term νομοζ with his appeals to scripture. After observing Paul's tendency to refer to νομοζ as written regulation, not to scripture, the study discusses problem passages to observe Paul using νομοζ ambiguously to advance his argument. That sets up Paul's normative appeal to laws in 13:8-10. Paul appears to advocate reading Torah as instructing scripture, while declaring its regulatory force at an end in Christ.
