Fulfillment of the Law
Lulu.com, 2006 - 171 pàgines
By Robbert A. Veen. A new look at the New Testament writings may provide us with a better understanding of the positive role of the Law of Moses in early Christian ethics. If Jesus understood obedience to the Torah as part of His mission, it should be important to Christians today to acquire a taste for careful ethical discourse along the lines of Jewish "legal" thought. This book tries to show by an in-depth analysis of the gospels of Mark and Matthew and the letter of James that early Christianity did in fact accept the continuing authority of the Torah for Christian life.
