Articles about Mosaic Law

The Mosaic Law, also called the Law of Moses, primarily refers to the first five books of the Bible, known as the Torah. Its common usage by Christians speaks to the terms of God’s covenant with the ancient nation of Israel, given through Moses, beginning with the Ten Commandments.

Many Christians are confused about which parts of the Law, if any, apply to them. This should not be, as Jesus instituted a New Covenant, unlike the Old.

A lot of GodWords readers consider themselves "Torah-observant." They believe that Christians are to live by the same laws given to the ancient Israelites. A primary verse in their argument is Matthew 5:17, where Jesus says that He came not to abolish the Law and the Prophets, but to fulfill them. Are they right? Are Christians under the law?

It's okay for Christians to eat pork. Why wouldn't it be okay? Some suggest that because the ancient Israelites were forbidden by God to eat pork, Christians are to avoid pork as well. That this is nonsense should be obvious to everyone, as Christians are not Israelites. Unfortunately, many preachers and teachers are teaching nonsense.
