Peter Vogt provides the following “strategies for communication” in preaching and 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
