Product Description

Christians have often neglected the wisdom of the Old Testament laws because they have been viewed as irrelevant, obscure, disturbing, or only useful as “moral laws”. In Old Testament Law for Christians, Roy E. Gane, a leading evangelical expert in biblical law, helps readers understand the Old Testament law, how it functioned in the Old Testament, and how it is and is not instructive for contemporary Christians. This is accomplished by providing a detailed explanation of the law’s purpose, as well as looking at the literary and historical background of ancient Israel. Gane proceeds to analyze extensively both the application and value of the Old Testament law. The aim of this work is to aid Christians, especially those who teach others, in understanding how Old Testament laws reveal wise and enduring values and principles, even when certain laws might not directly apply to us today.

Publisher's Description

The Old Testament law is foundational for our understanding of the Bible, but for many it remains some of the Old Testament's most foreign and exotic material. This book by a leading evangelical expert in biblical law helps readers understand Old Testament law, how it functioned in the Old Testament, and how it is (and is not) instructive for contemporary Christians. The author explicates the often confusing legal system of ancient Israel, differentiates between time-bound cultural aspects of Israelite law and universally applicable aspects of the divine value system, and shows the ethical relevance of Old Testament law for Christians today.
