The Law Jesus and Me - Part 1
How are today’s believers supposed to interpret the Law of the Old Testament? Is it a series of harsh rules that must be lived by, in order to gain God’s acceptance, or did God have another purpose in mind for His Law in this age of grace? The Law, rightly understood, does nothing to oppose the Gospel, but goes hand-in-hand with it, showing us what a life should look like that has been saved by grace.
If Christians confuse what is true of Jesus Christ as a human being with what is true of the Eternally Divine Son, they make very serious errors indeed. The most obvious is to conﬂate the exaltation of the Son of God from all eternity with the welcome given by the Father to the God-Man Christ Jesus, who redeemed God’s elect through a sacrificial death. So, in these great teachings, a course correction is long overdue, lest we run out of fuel over water. We must adore Jesus Christ our Lord, both fully Son of Man and fully Son of God.
