Paul and the Law: Holy, Spiritual, & Good
Paul and the Law: Holy, Spiritual, & Good is an ONGROUND ONLY Session 1 (7:00–8:15pm) course held at the Messianic Studies Institute (4950 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43230) Monday nights starting 1/29/2018.
Did Paul think of 'Torah' or 'Law' negatively? May it never be! He thought of it as holy, spiritual, and good. How should we understand 'Law' in Paul's letters? How does it apply to Jews and Gentiles in the new covenant in Messiah Yeshua? How did 'grace' and 'law' come to be misunderstood as enemies? Come be restored to a wholesome Biblical understanding of 'Torah' or 'Law' in the writings of Paul.
