The Law- No Longer Under a Schoolmaster

Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we may be supported by confidence. Yet, after that confidence is come, we are not, at this point under a schoolmaster. (Lady. 3:24-25) https://www.google.com/maps/place/Jurewitz+Law+Group/@32.7179411,-117.1587403,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x7e4d16f61ddf9879!8m2!3d32.7179411!4d-117.1587403?shorturl=1

For the law having a sorry excuse for beneficial what might be on the horizon, and not the very picture of the things, can never with those penances which they offered step by step persistently make the comers thereunto great. (Heb.

10:1)

For the law made nothing great, however the acquiring of a superior expectation did; by the which we draw near unto God. (Heb. 7:19)

Not, at this point Under a Schoolmaster

Despite the fact that the Old Testament ordinance of sacred text (Genesis – Malachi) is alluded to as the Law and the Prophets, the Law explicitly was the good, considerate, and stylized code that was given to the prophet Moses as uncovered in the initial five books of the Bible known as the Pentateuch (Genesis – Deuteronomy).

The missionary Paul said this law was the penmanship of statutes contained in instructions that was against us and as opposed to us (Eph. 2:15; Col. 2:14).

The Law as a pledge was given and urged to the country of Israel roughly 1,500 years before Christ. This pledge was as yet in power when Christ showed up and had a clear spot in the unfurling plan of Man’s reclamation.

Through the sorts and shadows of the Law we are made to see all the more completely the redemptive work of Jesus Christ (Jn. 5:39). In any case:

The Law as an agreement, with its exacting interest for nobility through compliance was never expected to be the redemptive specialist of Man. Besides, (as a contract) it was never urged to the New Testament church (Rom. 6:14).

Despite the fact that the Law was acceptable, heavenly, and just, and in spite of the fact that it announced the honorableness of God and set an upright norm for man, it had a shortcoming, in as much as it neglected to give Man the exemplary nature it requested (Gal. 3:21).

For what reason did the Law come up short? It fizzled in view of Man’s wicked nature and affinity toward wrongdoing. Indeed, the New Testament authors uncover the accompanying certainties about the reason for the Law:

“Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added in view of offenses till the seed ought to comeā€¦” (Gal. 3:19, accentuation added)

As to Law, we should initially comprehend that the Law is a schoolmaster. Which implies it was intended to be a guide, or a watchman who instructs (Gal. 3:24). Hence we use the Law to find out about Christ and to educate others. Anyway, what does the Law educate and what do we realize?

1) The Moral Law: as uncovered in the Ten Commandments train us concerning the exemplary nature of God.

2) The Civil (conciliatory) Law: as uncovered in the decisions encourage us concerning the wickedness of Man.

3) The Ceremonial Law: uncovers the need of amends for wrongdoing and compromise among God and Man.

These give to us types and shadows of the making amends work of Jesus Christ as uncovered in the New Covenant.

All in all, What’s Wrong with the Law?

For in the event that that first agreement had been perfect, at that point should no place have been looked for the second. For criticizing them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make another agreement with the place of Israel and the place of Judah:(Heb. 8:7,8, accentuation added)
