How Jesus Transforms the Ten Commandments
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”
For many Christians, conditioned to emphasize our freedom from the law, Jesus’ words seem strange, even incompatible with the gospel of grace. If Jesus did not abolish the law, then how should we look at the Ten Commandments today?
Clowney explains how Jesus intensifies the law and expands its scope to every situation in life. But as the author did so often during his ministry, he goes further, finding Christ in the law and showing how he fulfills it for his people. Thus believers will learn more not only of God’s character revealed in the law, but also of the gospel with its focus on Christ.
Divided into eleven chapters, each with study questions for reflection and application, this book is an ideal resource for group study and personal growth.
