Moses and Jesus...
In his epistle to the Galatians Paul paints a vivid
contrast between Moses and Jesus. Moses administers law,
Jesus exhibits grace. Moses says 'Work'; Jesus says
'Believe'. Moses says that salvation is 'through the works
of the law'; Jesus says it is 'in me, by grace through
faith'. Moses holds us in bondage as slaves; Jesus sets us
free and makes us sons. This contrast is drawn out in
Galatians 3:23 - 4:11 (cf. Acts 13:38-9). It is the same
contrast which Jesus drew in his parable of the Pharisee
and the publican (Lk. 18:9-14); which was rediscovered at
the Reformation. There is perhaps no message which needs more
to be recovered and proclaimed in our generation.
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
