The law of Moses, Summary:

(1) The Mosaic Covenant was given to Israel in three parts: the commandments, expressing the righteous will of God Exodus 20:1-26, the “judgments,” governing the social life of Israel Exodus 21:1-24:11, and the “ordinances,” governing the religious life of Israel; Exodus 24:12; 31:18.

(2) The commandments and ordinances were one complete and inseparable whole. When an Israelite sinned, he was held “blameless” if he brought the required offering Luke 1:6; Philippians 3:6.

(3) Law, as a method of the divine dealing with man, characterized the dispensation extending from the giving of the law to the death of Jesus Christ Galatians 3:13,14,23,24.

(4) The attempt of legalistic teachers (e.g.) Acts 15:1-31; Galatians 2:1-5, to mingle law with grace as the divine method for this present dispensation of grace, brought out the true relation of the law to the Christian, viz.

Romans 3:24

Being freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

Exodus 20:1-17

2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the .

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any , or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a , visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And shewing unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him that taketh his name in vain.

8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it .

9 shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and it.

12 thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not .

14 Thou shalt not commit .

15 Thou shalt not .

16 Thou shalt not bear against thy neighbour.

13 Christ hath us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit .

23 But before faith came, we were kept under the , shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

24 Wherefore the law was our to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

Acts 15:23-31

23 And they wrote letters by them after this manner; The apostles and elders and brethren send greeting unto the brethren which are of the in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia:

24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be , and : to whom we gave no such commandment:

25 It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved ,

26 Men that have their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

27 We have sent therefore , who shall also tell you the same things by mouth.

28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these ;

29 That ye from meats offered to idols, and from , and from things strangled, and from : from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.

2 And I went up by , and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the , but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.

3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be :

4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:

5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the of the gospel might continue with you.
