Living in the Light of the Law

Last week at Bob Jones University, we finished our semester series on the Ten Commandments entitled “Oh How I Love Your Law! God’s Laws for True Life.” Why a series on the Ten Commandments to people with great familiarity with the Bible? Everyone knows about the Ten Commandments, but most people do not really know…

The imagery associated with this process involves the use of shepherding terms. And that metaphor had significant and robust meaning for a first-century believer.…
