Paul and the Law of Moses

Did Paul teach that the Old Covenant is abolished by the New Covenant, or did Paul teach that the New Covenant is simply an extension or a re-affirmation of the Old Covenant?

This new study will be part of a series, available here:

  1. Mr. Goodgame

    I enjoy reading your articles and research you’ve done on end times. I recently began following Torah and found it untangles the knots of scripture. The apostle Peter said Paul’s words were difficult to understand and easy to misconstrue (2 Peter 3:15-16). I feel this verse applies to parts of the article above. While I agree that Paul

  2. taught salvation through Messiah and not by works of the Law. With that being said I disagree with you on the premise one can not reconcile teachings of Paul with the Law of Moses or old covenant practices. In fact I think Paul maintains that we should keep these commandments as evidenced by Colossians 3:16-17. Paul himself was falsely accused of preaching against Torah in various parts of Acts and gives his defense in Acts 24. There is so much more to say on these matters, but that’s enough for now.

  3. I don’t see many who would try to bear fruit to obtain salvation exhorting others to follow the clear and controversial commands, “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons.” (Matthew 10). These are curiously omitted from this checklist for instance:

    How exhausting it must be to try to work through a list that puts the 10 Commandments to shame to try to obtain and maintain God’s grace, and what if at the end because we didn’t raise the dead or we had not love, we fell off the narrow road? Oops!

    I believe Paul himself clearly tells us the reason his message will be attacked In 1 Corinthians 2:6-13. Hint: has to do with the Holy Spirit.

    Jesus gave unspiritual people clear commands they eventually disobeyed in their scattering at his death. Everything changed after his resurrection.

    Satan isn’t afraid of a Pelagianist who will give away everything he has and even lose his life for the sake of following a law and trying to earn God’s favor through natural means; he’s afraid of the believer who understands the New Birth, the Holy Spirit, God’s grace and resurrection power, spiritual authority, AND who doesn’t cling on to this world but rather pushes forward with the Gospel.

    Look forward to the rest of your series.
