The Law and the New Testament

The Question of Continuity

A rich and accessible treatment of what the Mosaic Law means for Christians today: to what extent do Christians remain bound by the Law and to what extent have they been freed from its strictures?

"A very satisfying study which works closely with the texts. Brief notes at the end of each chapter provide entree to the contemporary literary debate — a comprehensive bibliography would have been a welcome addition to the author and text indices.  The author’s reading of texts and theological judgment are balanced, sometimes providing new insights.”
Vic Pfitzner, Luther Seminary (Australia)

Reviews and endorsements

“This is easily the best concise treatment of the Law in the five New Testament sources surveyed by Dr. Thielman. His work is throughout characterized by clarity, an irenic tone, and familiarity with a wide range of the literature. This book deserves a wide readership, and will serve well as a textbook or introductory primer on Law in the New Testament.”
Ben Witherington III, Ashbury Theological Seminary
