Anyone who reads the Bible from cover to cover quickly realizes that a radical shift occurs between the Old Testament and the New Testament. Many things are different. One of the major differences has to do with the concept of law. It is clear that the Law given to Israel does not simply spill over into the Christian life. And yet, there are connections and overlaps between them. How do we make sense of this?
This question has received many attempted answers, but too often they have been driven more by theological assumptions than clear biblical teaching. Rethinking the Law is a fresh exception. It looks at what God Himself says about Law and laws in the Old Testament and the New Testament. It keeps things in their historical contexts and shows how Jesus changes everything about the role of law in our lives.
