Paul advised the Romans “the legislations is holy and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.” but 4 instances in 3 epistles he wrote, “We will not be lower than legislations yet lower than grace.” Christians learn those possible conflicting statements and are simply harassed. They ponder whether an individual can know how the legislation and the previous testomony pertains to their faith.

Some take the straightforward approach out and all yet forget about the outdated testomony calling it legalism. they like to pay attention to and luxuriate in the exceptional grace of God that includes salvation. this boundaries their realizing of the Scriptures and certainly, restricts religious development. Confusion extra abounds simply because with reference to each denomination has a distinct interpretation of the legislation and the connection among the testaments.

Lester Stephenson proposes a special process rooted in Jesus’ phrases in Matthew 5:17-18, “Do now not imagine that I got here to abolish the legislation or the Prophets; i didn't come to abolish yet to meet. For really I say to you, till heaven and earth cross away, no longer the smallest letter or stroke shall move from the legislation until eventually all is accomplished.” these verses demand Christians to seem anew on the legislations and the remainder of the previous testomony. no longer one a part of the legislation or what the prophets wrote will move away until eventually Jesus has thoroughly fulfilled it. Stephenson stresses that Christians needs to realize the significance of the Bible that Jesus and the apostles used. whenever Jesus and the apostles used the word, “it is written” they have been utilizing an outdated testomony passage to demonstrate a brand new testomony principle.

In A Biblicist View of legislation and Gospel, Stephenson advocates a biblicist view according to cautious religious study to provide an explanation for how Christians are to view the legislation and how the testaments healthy jointly as an encouraged whole.
