The lesson on November 6, 2022 was part 3 of the “Law and Grace” study. Wayne reviewed last weeks lesson for about 10 minutes than moved into today’s focus which was the types of pictures we receive of Christ in the Old Testament particularly in the Law and where Christ becomes the reality. Wayne asked us further questions:
- What is “the law”?
- What is the law’s significance and domain?
- What are its weaknesses and strengths?
- Paul says to the Romans:
KJV Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. (Rom. 6:14 KJV)
- What then does the law say to us in our age?
- What subset of the law is categorically for us?
The law came by Moses so we looked at some of the places that provided types that we could learn from. In John 1:16, 17 it says “And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” The remainder of the lesson looked at the places in scripture where we learn more of Christ from the types in the Law.
The scripture reading was from 2 Corinthians 4:3-6 KJV “3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
