What's Wrong with this Statement?

"...Israelites were appointed to live and serve under a meritorious, legal system, while Christians live and serve under a gracious system..."

Is this true? Hopefully what you have been learning in Theology for Breakfast helps you to more confidently say "No!" Hopefully it also helps you to see why it is important to think through issues of continuity and discontinuity in the Scriptures.

Both the New and Old Testaments teach that grace is the one and only way that sinners have rightly related to God as Abraham was justified by faith and is therefore the spiritual father of faith transtestamentally (Romans 4; Galatians 3; Genesis 15).

Reading for Tuesday, October 28 will be chapter 6 of Sacred Bond.
