Peculiarities of the Law of Moses:

  1. Its national aspects. The law of Moses was given to, and for, a single nation (Exodus 19:1-25; Exodus 20:1-17; Deuteronomy 5:1-33; Malachi 4:4). It developed a national worship. Previous to it, worship was confined to the family (Genesis 12:6-7; Genesis 46:1-3). Under it God recorded His name at the altar (Exodus 20:24-26), and required all Israel to assemble there and worship through the Divinely ordained priesthood (Numbers 18:1-7; Deuteronomy 12:12-16). The law of Moses was given orally (Exodus 20:1-23), and perpetuated,
    1. by being written on tables of stone (Exodus 24:12; Exodus 31:18),
    2. by being written in a book (Exodus 24:4; Exodus 24:7-8; Deuteronomy 31:24-26; Hebrews 9:18-19),
    3. and it was made a part of the national life by being taught to each new generation, talked of in their homes, bound upon their hands, written upon the posts of their houses, on their gates (Deuteronomy 6:1-9) written on pillars (Deuteronomy 27:1-8) and publicly proclaimed in the ears of the nation (Deuteronomy 11:26-32; Deuteronomy 31:9-13).
  2. Its simplicity. The law of Moses was given to a nation that had been out of bondage only a short time, and was adapted to their necessities just as it found them. God intended that they should understand and obey it, for
    1. the masses were ignorant, and disposed to forsake Him (Exodus 20:1-5; Deuteronomy 27:1-8);
    2. through it they received the knowledge of sin (Exodus 20:1-7; Numbers 25:1-15; Romans 3:19-21);
    3. it was their bond of union (Deuteronomy 7:12-16);
    4. it carried with it a blessing and a curse (Deuteronomy 11:26-32);
    5. it foreshadowed the gospel of Christ (Colossians 2:17; Hebrews 10:1).
  3. Greatness of its blessings. The blessings of the law were,
    1. perpetual possession of the land promised to their fathers (Deuteronomy 7:1-13; Deuteronomy 30:16),
    2. long life and good days (Deuteronomy 30:20),
    3. the good things of this world (Deuteronomy 28:1-14),
    4. protection from their enemies (Deuteronomy 20:10-18; Deuteronomy 23:14),
    5. superiority to all other nations (Deuteronomy 15:5-6; Deuteronomy 26:19; Deuteronomy 28:12-13).
  4. Greatness of its curses. The curses of the law were numerous and terrible (Deuteronomy 27:11-26; Deuteronomy 28:15-68). In addition to this, many crimes were punishable with death or expulsion from the congregation of Israel:
    1. (death)
    2. (expulsion)
  5. Important fact-Election. Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3), Isaac (Genesis 26:1-5; Jacob (Genesis 28:10-14) and the nation of Israel were elected in order to the unfolding of the purpose of God (Exodus 19:1-8). The law, however, made provisions for aliens (Exodus 20:10; Leviticus 19:33-34). It provided a home for the Edomites (Deuteronomy 2:1-5), and made provision for the entrance of the Edomites and the Egyptians into the congregation of the Lord in their third generation (Deuteronomy 23:7-8).

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
