Grace and Law X: A Law Divided?

Is it necessary for the New Testament Christian to observe and obey the totality of God’s Law? In one sense, the answer is clearly “YES!” But upon closer inspection, the answer requires more nuance.

But we must be more specific than this; there is a division within the law between the civil, ceremonial, and moral law of God.

In this week’s episode, John Snyder and Steve Crampton discuss the three division of God’s law and how the New Testament Christian relates to each.
