Gerry Breshears :: How do we approach Old Testament law, specifically the stoning of disobedient children?

  • “What happens when God calls Abraham is that He gives him a way of righteousness,” describes Dr. Gerry Breshears, Author and Professor of Theology at Western Seminary. This way of righteousness has four dimensions: loyalty to God, trust in God, keeping the way of the Lord, and having belief in God’s provision. The Old Testament law is a very concrete way of life from Sinai to Pentecost, which is specific for the life of Israel. Under the new covenant, those aspects of Abrahamic righteousness are still there, to love God and to love others. “Those things in the Old Testament are for a specific period of time. That period of time is very different than today, so many of the things that are in the Mosaic law are not relevant to us at all.”
