Law of Moses came from Mt. Sinai. The one below clearly comes from a different mountain.

Isaiah 2:3 “for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”

The law, here, refers to the law of faith (Deut 6:5, Rom 3:27). Not the law of Moses which the Jews (Matt 23:1) sat in the seat of...I believe that would be a throne.

Psa 132:13
For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.

The two covenants mentioned in Galatians 4:25

Hey James the law says they should of stoned her but she wasn't under the law...
My comments are made with the focus on the Pharisees and who their guide was before hearing the 'Word'. They started out with Moses being their guide and after having the law written on their heart by hearing the "Word" they were convicted by their own conscience.
Conscience I think is another term for the heart.

Not by the hand not by the letter but the conscience being led by the Spirit:

Jeremiah 31:31-33
31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel,

33 ... I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts

Most Excellent Kev. Great example.

Pharisees came with...
John 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us..

Then they heard...
Romans 10..So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

This is how He put 'His law' in inward parts of he Pharisees.

John 8:6 with his finger wrote(Jer. 31:33) on the ground(Their stony hearts were in the ground.)...

Luke 8:15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it.

1. Why did the Pharisees not obey the law that Moses gave? Per their law they should have stoned here...but they had a 'change of heart' They had a new one written on their hearts by hearing 'the Word' of God.

2 Cor3:3 in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

Seems like the "tables have turned" in John 8 on some Pharisees....otherwise they would have obeyed Moses.

2 John 1:5
And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

That's because conservatives still have their senses, Jim. We don't have Chick-fil-A's around here, but I did go to one in Ohio. Very good chicken! Didn't try their coffee, though. Don't even know if they sell it. If they did, it would be better than Starbucks. The stuff I make is better than Starbucks.
Chick-fil- A's coffee is good. Had one just a few days ago.

If the passage was saying that Jesus was writing the law into their hearts, they would have been born again. And I don't think they were.
That is fine Bro. I simply cant ignore the traits of both picture and sound existing in the Ancient Hebrew language and translated to fit like a glove(not literal, but you get the picture) into English.

William Tyndale was quite aware of it and used it to 'shape the foundation'(not literally but you see the picture) of our English language today.

Paul was aware of it as he uses Deut 25:4 and 1 Cor. 9:9 as an example...

Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn.

Doth God take care for oxen?
Or saith he it altogether for our sakes?
(Not literally, but you get the picture.)

The topic is not how to garden but on keeping silent(muzzle) those(Oxen) who preach(treadeth) the gospel(corn).

Its a picture language Brother so the common man would relate and understand the pure language....see Zeph. 3:9

"Getting the picture" not you receiving an 8 x 10 but receiving the picture in your mind and coming to an understanding of what I am describing.

God's blessing to you Brother.

No problem St James. But I think your recent revelation is a bit far fetched. Others have said that Jesus was writing certain commandments in the sand, and it was this that convicted them. But there's no real support for either.
Thanks Sr Penny, a most relevant text to the discussion.
I've seen nothing in Scripture to support what others have said. Nothing.

I however did provide the support in Scripture in other portions necessary for consideration for the one I mentioned....then I would say not so far fetched.

Hi James. No it was Kev who said that the law is irrelevant to some. I believe it is relevant to all.
Okay....My Bad. I thought you were asking the question from your understanding.

I must admit I have learned quite a bit from the SA conversation although indirectly.

I had never been aware of the association of John 8 and Jer 31:33-34 until last night. Amazing. Isaiah 54:13 is indeed the way.

Saint James, do you think that when preaching the law (as in Ex 20), a pastor ought to mention that it is relevant to some but not to others?
Hey Bro, Sorry for the delayed response and perhaps your thoughts have moved on from this.....but I tend to think Paul knew what he was saying here.

2 Cor 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon 'their' heart.

The hearts of those with the vail upon their heart...This would be relevant to some I think..

...but not others as mentioned here.

Gal. 3:13
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law

BTW...I think John 8 is a great example to demonstrate this difference as you see a very real change in the heart.

Just sharing Scripture of what was shone to me on what seems to be an example of prophecy and fulfillment that may be relevant to the conversation.

Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

John 8:5
Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

John 8:6
... But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground,

He wrote on the ground of their hearts.
(See Luke 8:15 as a test...good ground = good heart).

John 8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience.

The pharisees came to Jesus using law of Moses as the measuring stick accusing and left using their conscience aka heart freshly written upon.

Martin Luther's quote from 500 years ago bares repeating as I was reminded of it typing this post.

"My conscience is my guide, Scripture is my Authority. And I can do no other than abide by His teachings. Here I stand. God help me."

Jer 31:34
....I will remember their sin no more.

May God bless you!

I did a word search on the term 'law'. Fascinating at the usage in different verses.
Isaiah 51 speaks of a law that shall proceed.

Law of Moses was already given.

4 Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people

In the gospel of John Jesus refers to the law as 'their' law. John 8. John 10.

Why would Jesus say "in 'your' law"...

Things to consider....

Bro John UK. Sorry for not replying to your question. Will look to later today if time permits.

Perhaps a different observation point on how we view the law.

Psalm 63:5
My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,

*Food for the soul

Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.”
John 6:27

Apparently there are two types of food as contrasted in John 6:50-51.

I am of the thought that Lev. 19:18 is what the Son of man gives. In conjuntion with what the Son of God gives Deut. 6:5.

John 5:25-27 reveals He is both.

John 19:30 Jesus declared it is finished.

What was finished? His Work!

What was His work? Love!

The purpose of circumcision/baptism is to bring one into the bond of a covenant.
Rom 7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ....

The Decalogue and the Levitical Law is a covenant (Deut 4:13). You are either bound to it by John's baptism or free from it by Christ's baptism.

Thank you Brother for this post. Most edifying and very well said.

I could not help but think of a few verses in the Gospel of John while reading your post...

The body of Christ which I believe is the same as flesh is mentioned here.

John 1:14 ....and 'the Word' became flesh.

And as far as Christ's baptism....

John 15:3 Now are ye clean through 'the Word'.

As far as his commandments...

John 14:21 He that hath my commandments (my commandments... which are found in 1 John 3:21-23) , and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will show mine own self to him.

John 6:63
'The words' that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life

Thank you Brother!!!

your position seemed difficult to follow, or grasp, never mind to adhere, and this is why it was not considered.
If something is difficult to follow, ask questions.

Most are willing to share what they know with those who ask and have a desire to learn.

I have learned that ONLY the listener is the one learning in a conversation which makes feedback that precious commodity the speaker desires. I think the bible calls it iron sharpening iron and this yields benefits for both as well as anyone LISTENING. A win win situation.

If everything came easy we would value nothing.

Ok then, James and John...thanks for the encouragement. Maybe I'll put it together then. I'll put it in the kindest possible of ways, but my other thing was that I have my doubts it'll be received well.
Personally, I've always appreciated constructive criticism from people looking from the outside in. Honestly, we're it not for these, I probably wouldn't be aware of some of my shortcomings. The difference between myself and some though, is that I welcome it with an open mind. Whenever someone has ever said, "Chris, you're this, or that", or, "Chris, you do this or that", etc, my response is normally, "Yeah, I know...I'm working on that". That's the difference that some just don't seem to be capable of...honest introspection, or a defensive posture.
When you are receiving flack.....it just means you are flying over the target.

Chris,
I am still interested in your perspective. As far as it being off topic....the topic in this story is street preachers convicted for quoting the bible. Perhaps what you have to say will come from the bible? Grip it and rip it Bro.

Okay...I have been studying on what a store front looks like...hope I pass.

Thanks, I've been sorting out in my head what I want to write, and think it's going to be a bit long. I'll try to get to it tonight, but if not, will pick a thread thats not seeing any action to toss it into tomorrow AM. This thread will disappear from the app I use by tomorrow.
I just want to point out some things I see here and to give some perspectives that probably haven't been considered.
Looking forward to what you have to present Brother.

Just some thoughts to consider to add to the conversation.

I think David rested in hope.

A possible key thought is knowing The opposite of rest is work.

It seems that He kept the Sabbath(rest) by loving God, which is the outworking of faith.

Prayers to you Brothers and may all your needs be exceedingly met.
