Publisher's Description

Paul told the Romans the Law is holy and the commandment is holy and righteous and good. Yet four times in three epistles he wrote, We are not under law but under grace. Christians read these seemingly conflicting statements and are easily confused. They wonder if anyone can understand how the law and the Old Testament relates to their faith.

Some take the easy way out and all but ignore the Old Testament calling it legalism. They prefer to concentrate on and enjoy the magnificent grace of God that comes with salvation. This limits their understanding of the Scriptures and indeed, restricts spiritual growth. Confusion further abounds because just about every denomination has a different interpretation of the law and the relationship between the testaments.

Lester Stephenson proposes a different approach rooted in Jesus words in Matthew 5:17-18, Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Those two verses call for Christians to look anew at the law and the rest of the Old Testament. Not one part of the law or what the prophets wrote will pass away until Jesus has completely fulfilled it. Stephenson stresses that Christians must recognize the importance of the Bible that Jesus and the apostles used. Each time Jesus and the apostles used the phrase, it is written they were using an Old Testament passage to illustrate a New Testament principle.

In A Biblicist View of Law and Gospel, Stephenson advocates a biblicist view based on careful Bible study to explain how Christians are to view the law and the way the testaments fit together as an inspired whole.

    I found this book to be a complete and thorough review of the role of the Law and the Old Testament in the Church Age (today). Too many Christians dismiss the Law and the Old Testament as antiquated and not relevant to today. Yet as the author so clearly points out in this book, there is such meaning and richness that a thorough understanding of the Law and the Old Testaments adds to our reading of the New Testament.

    After all, it was this very law that was the Scriptures Jesus and his disciples read and preached from.

    I really liked how the author in the 1st chapter set down some prerequisites for interpreting Scripture. And those are: desire for the truth, dedication to the truth, diligence in ascertaining the truth and discernment. And you can tell throughout this book that the author practiced these principles in presenting this study to us. The author is very careful to seek and share the truth in his review and in his presentation.

    In fact, there were quite a few practical tips to be gleaned from this book to use in our personal study of the Scriptures. The author highlights the facts that a careful study of the Scriptures pays close attention to context and culture in which words are written and used. Additionally, the author points out that a Biblicist uses the literal interpretation of the text. Thereby not only will you gain an exhaustive understanding of the Old Testament Law and how it helps us better understand and interpret the New Testament, you as the reader will also pick up basic Bible study tips as well.

    Here is one of my favorite quotes. The author says in Chapter 5, the Law does not save, but shows the need for salvation. The Law does not make men holy. It reveals the holiness of God and reveals how men fall short of His perfection.

    So if you are seeking to grow in your Bible study skills, want to better understand how the Old Testament helps us interpret the New Testament, or just want to understand the relation of the Law to today (Church Age), get a copy of this book and prepare to have your knowledge expanded. I highly recommend this book.
