10: The Law and the Gospel – Thought Starters — 2 Comments

  1. Perfect Law and Perfect Gospel Hand in Hand

    "The law of God is perfect" (Psalm 19:8a). This word "temimah" (perfect) corresponds to the required condition of the sacrificial animals in the sanctuary service (Leviticus 1:3.10; 3:1; 4:3 ect.). The law as well as the sacrificial animals are perfect. The moral law is a perfect expression of the perfect will of a perfect God. Psalm 19:7-11 deals with the moral law as David mentions forgiveness of even hidden faults (vs. 12). God does not just ignore or bursh away sins like dust. The substitutionary death of a sacrificial animal is necessary for atonement to be accomplished. This points to the "precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot" (1 Peter 1:19 RSV).

    The perfect moral law goes hand in hand with the perfect gospel. One cannot be without the other.

    Winfried Stolpmann

  2. There is nothing under the sun that can replace the sweetness of sabath keeping in a child of yahwe,the law is the perfect character of God,how great and wonderful it is to bear the same character with the divine ruler of the entire universe.
