Exodus Parts 37-70

As the story of the birth of Israel unfolds, it raises a very vital question for us: is the Christian under the Mosaic law? It is a question often approached in a very confusing way. What does 'the law of God' mean? Do you use that phrase to mean 'principles of righteousness'? A Christian most certainly keeps principles of righteousness! Jesus and His apostles have a lot to say to Christians about living a godly life. Much of the New Testament is about living a godly life for God, through our Lord Jesus Christ.     

But actually this is not the meaning of the phrase 'the law' in the vast majority of times when it is used in the Bible. 'The law of God' is everything that God gave to the nation of Israel at the time of Moses. It generally means 'the Mosaic system'. In that sense of the term, the Christian is not under the law. He or she walks in the Spirit and by walking in the Spirit they fulfil the Mosaic law, indirectly. The Christian even goes beyond and higher than the Ten Commandments, by walking in the Spirit under the explicit instruction of Jesus and His apostles, whose teachings we find in the New Testament.

 Although these chapters record the early history of Israel, they are hugely important for Christians today.
