The study of Old Testament law cannot bring a revelation of Christ as one's life
Can you elaborate ?
The law only points out the lack of perfection. It cannot give perfection, only demand it. It cannot be kept in the flesh of sin. Jesus came, in the flesh, and fulfilled the perfection requirement. Through Jesus, like Adam gave us death, Jesus gave us life. Through this gift, by faith, we have this perfection by God's grace.
I don't understand what you mean by this statement
And it interest me
The 613 Mitzvah , OT laws that began with the 10 commandments and that are often and erroneously called the Laws of Moses, when they're the Laws of God, could not be kept perfectly.
Jesus even proved that when he violated them himself. Healing people on the Sabbath, etc....
Christ is our embodiment of the actual laws of God for the new covenant with God's people.
Interesting. The average israeli living before Christ, expected another to appear whom they called the redeemer.
Somehow they knew the animal sacrifices were not enough. How could an israeli get right with Gd at the moment they faced death if they could not perform an animal sacrifice? If they cannot get in an animal sacrifice in time, would that mean they would be considered sinners before Gd?
2Co 3:14 — 2Co 3:17
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
