In my Into to Old Testament class this summer, I learned a lot.
One of the most memorable things from the class is this article.
Dan Hayes talks about how the OT law applies today in real life and how it does not.
It is a great read. I highly recommend that you check it out.
But the law has a place in today’s Christianity….
It is important.
What I find beautiful though is that the Christianity is not just the law.
Christianity is the law and the Gospel.
Through the law we realize our flaws, our falleness, and our need for help.
Through the Gospel we come to know our Savior, our friend, the grace and mercy that we need. The only way to fulfill the law is by accepting the Gospel.
It is so wonderful!
