Law in Biblical Thought and Practice

"In biblical thought and practice the term law (whose connotations must not automatically be interpreted in terms of the present meaning of the word) always contains a strong element of authority and is expressive of an authoritative, in the biblical case divinely authoritative, order."

Robert Banks, Jesus and the Law in the Synoptic Tradition (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1975), 13.
