Within the larger context of Romans 2, Paul advances his argument against the Jews. His indictment against the Jews is that it is not mere possession of the Law that saves them. This is because the Law, in and of itself, has no ability to bring about the life that it commands. This point is made is made within this text. We see that those who have the Law (the Jews) do not do what it commands. Later in Romans we will see that it is the gospel that saves because it is able to bring about the life that the Law requires viz. the work of the Spirit. A few points stand out of this text: 1. There is a duplicated pattern of 4 propositions each grounded in an aspect of the Law. This is Paul's explanation of his opening statement of what it means to call oneself a Jew. 2. Paul's main point is that even though the Jews have the commandments of the Law they in fact dishonor God by their breaking of the Law.

καὶ γινώσκεις τὸ θέλημα
and know his will
καὶ δοκιμάζεις τὰ διαφέροντα
and approve what is excellent,
κατηχούμενος ἐκ τοῦ νόμου,
because you are instructed from the law;

παιδευτὴν ἀφρόνων,
an instructor of the foolish,
διδάσκαλον νηπίων,
