“The law was a schoolmaster unto Christ” (Gal. 3:24) and contained “the shadow of things to come” (Heb. 10:1), whose body and express image is in Christ. (Francis Turretin, Elenctic Theology, Bk. 2, p. 226)
In our endeavor to show how the one redemptive work of Christ was administered or dispensed to the saints of the Old Testament, we have shown that the Law of God, including the Ten Commandments, was no exception. In our last post, we have shown from the Scriptures that Christ Himself was He Who promulgated the Law from Mt. Sinai. Here we will show that not only was He the giver of the Law, but also the very content and substance that the Moral Law of God imaged and pictured.
