By Lester L. Stephenson

Paul advised the Romans “the legislation is holy and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.” but 4 instances in 3 epistles he wrote, “We aren't less than legislation yet lower than grace.” Christians learn those probably conflicting statements and are simply careworn. They wonder whether someone can know how the legislations and the outdated testomony pertains to their faith.

Some take the straightforward approach out and all yet forget about the previous testomony calling it legalism. they like to pay attention to and luxuriate in the awesome grace of God that includes salvation. this boundaries their realizing of the Scriptures and certainly, restricts non secular development. Confusion additional abounds simply because as regards to each denomination has a distinct interpretation of the legislation and the connection among the testaments.

Lester Stephenson proposes a distinct technique rooted in Jesus’ phrases in Matthew 5:17-18, “Do no longer imagine that I got here to abolish the legislations or the Prophets; i didn't come to abolish yet to satisfy. For actually I say to you, until eventually heaven and earth cross away, no longer the smallest letter or stroke shall go from the legislations until eventually all is accomplished.” these verses demand Christians to seem anew on the legislations and the remainder of the previous testomony. now not one a part of the legislations or what the prophets wrote will cross away until eventually Jesus has thoroughly fulfilled it. Stephenson stresses that Christians needs to realize the significance of the Bible that Jesus and the apostles used. at any time when Jesus and the apostles used the word, “it is written” they have been utilizing an outdated testomony passage to demonstrate a brand new testomony principle.

In A Biblicist View of legislations and Gospel, Stephenson advocates a biblicist view in accordance with cautious religious study to give an explanation for how Christians are to view the legislations and how the testaments healthy jointly as an encouraged whole.
