The law was the law of Moses, the Mosaic law. The law was the Jews main interest in their religious life. The law was 430 years after the Abrahamic covenant and promise. The law was temporary. The law was added because of transgressions. Now that Christ has come we are no longer under the law. The law was not made for good men but for bad. If you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law. The law is the ministry of death. Once I was alive apart from law but when law came I died. The new covenant is by faith. The old covenant is fading away. He has abolished the law. We died to the law. Jesus fulfilled the law. The law was a schoolmaster until Christ. Law brings wrath.
