Sinai and the Saints: Reading Old Covenant Laws for the New Covenant Community

Product Description

Though the Old Testament tells the story of the beginning of God's redemptive history, and is part of the church affirmed canon of Scripture, many Christians still have a difficult time grasping what role the laws of the old covenant play in the lives of those living under the new covenant. For lay readers and seminarians alike, this difficulty in understanding the laws and their role in the biblical narrative directly affects reading, knowing, and appreciating the Old Testament as a whole.

In Sinai and the Saints James Todd offers an accessible introduction & exposition to the topic to aid readers in better understanding the purpose and function of the Old Testament laws in the biblical story. He makes a bold claim by contending that as followers of Jesus Christ who stand under a new covenant, Christians are no longer subject to any of the Old Testament laws. Focusing on the laws of the Pentateuch, he then addresses the proper role and benefits of the Old Testament laws in the Christian life. With wit and insight, Todd helps Christians to understand how the laws given to the people of Israel at Mount Sinai should be read by those called to live as saints.

Editorial Reviews

"Many readers of the Old Testament struggle to understand all of those random, bizarre, strict, and oppressive laws. What's a Christian to do? Start by reading Todd's Sinai and the Saints. Todd offers his readers engaging stories, provocative insights, and a compelling interpretation that offers a way forward—one that makes sense of the law and helps people understand it in light of Jesus and the rest of Scripture."

David T. Lamb, Allan A. MacRae Professor of Old Testament, Biblical Theological Seminary, author of God Behaving Badly and Prostitutes and Polygamists

"The author has written a book that is both popular and practical on a much needed topic: the relationship of the Old Covenant to the New. I believe this work will not only fill a needed gap in Christian literature but will be extremely helpful and useful to believers. The failure to understand the relationship of the Old Covenant to the New is probably one of the most important areas where Christians need good help—and they will receive good help here."

Peter J. Gentry, Donald L. Williams Professor of Old Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Addressing highly relevant questions, especially in the area of ethics, Todd provides an exceptionally helpful guide to the complex issue of how Christians should view Old Testament law as authoritative Scripture. His approach, which is accessible to non-experts, draws on the best of modern scholarship, offering, among other things, an insightful discussion of the relevance of the Ten Commandments for twenty-first-century Christians. Anyone grappling with how to approach the laws of Exodus to Deuteronomy from a Christian perspective will find this book an invaluable introduction."

T. Desmond Alexander, director of postgraduate studies, Union Theological College, Belfast
