    Great,the exposetion is edifying.

  2. Hi, I came across you page and I have to disagree with this. The law still applies to everyone today. The two covenants are actually one. Jesus came to abolish the TRADITIONS OF MEN(PHARISEES) not the Law. The law is spoken of as giving LIFE AND BEING HOLY AND GOOD. By the way the definition of sin is TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW. JESUS IS THE LIVING TORAH. HE CAME TO DIE FOR OUR SINS WHEN WE TRANSGRESS THE LAW AND ALSO CAME AS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW TO KEEP THE LAW. Now yes we are saved through faith in Jesus but we keep the law(torah) as a way of showing love to him. “If you love me keep my commandments”. We must go back to the law as a guide of how to live life and look to Jesus to see how to keep it and as an atonement for our sins. Shalom!
