Preaching and Teaching Law Passages

Peter Vogt provides the following “strategies for communication” in preaching a
nd teaching the Law passages in the Pentateuch to a contemporary audience.

  • Address the cultural connotations of the Law (e.g., for Americans, laws are about rules, for OT Israelites the Law was about mandated righteousness)
  • Note the purpose of the Law in its original setting
  • Discuss the implications of Jesus’ ministry for the Law’s relevance
  • Address the applicability of the Law in a contemporary setting
