Hi, guys —

In Romans 7, it refers to the Law.

  • What does St. Paul mean when he refers to the Law of God?
  • Isn't there also a law of sin?
  • What does that mean?

Ann

Bob replied:

Ann,

Paul uses the term law in reference to the Mosaic law. This law encompasses all the rituals and practices of the Jewish faith before Christ. Jewish people would consider Kosher laws, ritual laws, and moral laws to be all part of the same code.

While Paul would not argue that morals have been set aside, he would say that much of the Jewish law has been abrogated. The Law has been fulfilled in Christ, who has established a New Foundation for Law under love.

Peace,

Bob Kirby
