The Law of Moses
  • Books that contain The Law of Moses
  • Exodus
  • Leviticus
  • Numbers
  • Deuteronomy
  • Distinctions between the books
  • Exodus is the initial narrating of the giving of
    the Law, and includes much of it.
  • Leviticus contains much technical information
    about worship conducted by the priests.
  • Numbers includes censuses and laws in the
    concluding narrative of the Israelites under
  • Deuteronomy reviews the laws in sermons delivered
    by Moses near the end of his life.
  • The books sometimes overlap sometimes contain
    laws unique to the individual books.

New Testament Context Brief Highlights
  • Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or
    the Prophets I did not come to abolish but to
    fulfill. Matthew 517
  • For the Law was given through Moses grace and
    truth were realized through Jesus Christ. John
  •  For what the Law could not do, weak as it was
    through the flesh, God did sending His own Son
    in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an
    offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,
    so that the requirement of the Law might be
    fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the
    flesh but according to the Spirit. Romans 83-4
  • When He said, " A new covenant," He has made the
    first obsolete But whatever is becoming obsolete
    and growing old is ready to disappear. Hebrews

Galatians 3
  •  22But the Scripture has shut up everyone under
    sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ
    might be given to those who believe.
  •  23But before faith came, we were kept in custody
    under the law, being shut up to the faith which
    was later to be revealed.
  •  24Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead
    us to Christ, so that we may be justified by
  •  25But now that faith has come, we are no longer
    under a tutor.
  •  26For you are all sons of God through faith in
    Christ Jesus.
  •  27For all of you who were baptized into Christ
    have clothed yourselves with Christ.
  •  28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is
    neither slave nor free man, there is neither male
    nor female for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
  •  29And if you belong to Christ, then you are
    Abraham's descendants, heirs according to
