The Law in Holy Scripture

The Law in Holy Scripture
There is a significant amount of confusion and diverse opinion in the church and among biblical scholars concerning -the Law- in Holy Scripture. This volume consists of essays delivered during the 2001 (16th) Annual Symposium on Exegetical Theology at Concordia Theological Seminary. Biblical scholars with expertise in the Old Testament, Jesus and the Gospels, and the Pauline Epistles offer a wide and representative portrait of the Law in Holy Scripture and its ongoing significance. These essays engage and critique current problematic perspectives on the Law as well as affirm faithful teaching from the past. A concluding essay evaluates and synthesizes the common issues raised in the symposium to present a solid biblical theology of the Law for the life of the church.
