If New Priest = New Law; What is the New Law?

Hi Juli,

Only just now caught up with your comments on Heb 7:12, re a change in the law, which I fully concur with but seemingly not many do!

For some time I have been wrestling with the classical reformed view of the ‘third use of the law’ namely using the Decalogue as the guide for life.

My concern has been the great propensity we have for sliding into legalism and self-justification, just as the Jews did. I keep coming back to the two laws Paul mentions, ‘the Law of sin and death’ and ‘the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus’, and that living in the latter, is the natural state of the regenerate. Sanctification should be of the new creation life just as much as regeneration is its beginning.

Have you become aware of and what are your thoughts on Brian Rosner’s take on how Paul not only viewed the Law, but applied it in Christian living, namely by repudiation, replacement and reappropriation.

Your comments would be appreciated
Allan


Good morning Allan,

Thanks for the email, it is so interesting. I have been feeling the need to write a series on what God's Law is now that we have a new and better covenant, because I really feel this is something not taught or known.

First I am not familiar with Brian Rosner's teachings, I'll have to look him up—sounds interesting. But for the classical reformed view of the third use of the law, or using it as a guide for life or Christian living, I think it is an incorrect application of the law. And I too encounter and hear this all the time, which is why we have this hybrid of grace and law that permeates the Church.

As you mentioned, there is a law of sin and death and a law of the Spirit of Life (Rom. 8:2)—clearly two separate things. Paul says that the one sets us free from the other. So what are these laws?

A Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation—Ephesians 1:17

A Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation—Ephesians 1:17
“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better” (Ephesians 1:17)

I’ve been involved in a small Bible study group for almost three years. A good friend of mine is also in this group. Watching the transformation that has taken place over the years has been incredible. As he’s come into a deeper understanding of Jesus, I’ve seen him overcome the religious ideas he grew up with. God has given him a spirit of wisdom and revelation, and he’s entered into a deep and intimate knowledge of God that has transformed him.

It’s been beautiful to watch, but more impressively, it is something that can be replicated!
