Though the Old Testament tells the story of the beginning of God's redemptive history, and is part of the church affirmed canon of Scripture, many Christians still have a difficult time grasping what role the laws of the old covenant play in the lives of those living under the new covenant. For lay readers and seminarians alike, this difficulty in understanding the laws and their role in the biblical narrative directly affects reading, knowing, and appreciating the Old Testament as a whole.
In Sinai and the Saints James Todd offers an accessible introduction & exposition to the topic to aid readers in better understanding the purpose and function of the Old Testament laws in the biblical story. He makes a bold claim by contending that as followers of Jesus Christ who stand under a new covenant, Christians are no longer subject to any of the Old Testament laws. Focusing on the laws of the Pentateuch, he then addresses the proper role and benefits of the Old Testament laws in the Christian life. With wit and insight, Todd helps Christians to understand how the laws given to the people of Israel at Mount Sinai should be read by those called to live as saints.
