They shall, Our Lord proceeds to show that, so far from destroying or dishonouring the law, he would magnify it even beyond their Pharisaic teachers, who divided its precepts into the weightier and lighter classes, the former of which must be kept, while the latter might be slighted. Sabbath observance had special significance to Israel; it commemorated their unique relationship with the Lord: “It is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you” (Exod 31:13). Thus, it also marked Israel’s special relationship with their Redeemer. In no instance does he imply that only a particular category of laws possesses such high value.37 Here is what the yod looks like: י and here is the difference between the marks of the tittle in two Hebrew letters: ה and ח. But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? Arguments from silence are often weak, but as Feinberg demonstrated, this silence is deafening: Heaven and earth as they now are, are transitory. This article has examined the issue of Sabbath observance to show that dispensationalism rises to both challenges. But Jesus saw them with different eyes than the disciples did. Scripture is clear: the Sabbath belongs to Israel. It is the Lord who raises them, restores them, and puts his Spirit within them (37:1–14). Speaking for a consortium of seven, non-dispensational scholars, D. A. Carson comes to essentially the same conclusion: “We are not persuaded that the New Testament unambiguously develops a ‘transfer theology,’ according to which the Sabbath moves from the seventh day to the first day of the week.”15 Years ago, Dr. Bruce Waltke (formerly a Hebrew professor at Dallas Seminary — now teaching elsewhere) said something like this: “When we come to the New Testament, we must determine whether the New Testament ratifies, modifies, or abrogates the Old Testament law.” There are some of the commandments that are clearly carried directly over into the New Testament. The death penalty is attached just as readily to Nadab and Abihu’s failure to follow proper ritual procedure (10:1–7) as to sexual immorality (20:8–16). It is used of muzzling the ox (1 Timothy 5:18), and is addressed by Christ to the demon (Mark 1:25), and to the raging sea (Mark 4:39). For example, the word “law” has many lexical usages, the moral law, ceremonial law, civil law, and it sometimes refers to Scripture itself (Mt 5:19). I rest my case. Moses would not have accepted the first day of the week as a substitute for the seventh day. Matthew 10:7 "And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand."

This, however, is a matter of New Testament law, not an application of the Fourth Commandment. Traditional Approaches to Application Enduring Word presents free Bible resources from David Guzik, including his written commentary on the Bible. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind.” Stifler remarked, “It is impossible to say that this general language does not include the Sabbath.”9 Colossians 2:16–17 apparently makes the same point, but exegetical issues render the matter less certain.10 Law is mandatory, not optional. As such, it marked Israel’s special relationship with the Creator. Conclusions Regarding Dispensationalism as Biblical You shall not sow your seed with mixed seed. Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was called to pastor the New Park Street Chapel, London, when he was only nineteen.This church became the 6,000 seat Metropolitan Tabernacle, which he pastored until his death at age 58. If Ezekiel’s Temple refers figuratively to Christ, what is the interpreter to do with all the details associated with it? The rest probably do refer to Lord’s Day worship, but none identify it as a Christian Sabbath or treat it as divinely mandated.13 The None of these things have happened yet; the fulfillment must be in the future. How then should a New Testament saint apply the Old Testament law? JODT 11:32 (March 2007) p. 93 Go To Habakkuk Index. Indeed, Ryrie considers the literal, or “normal,” hermeneutic crucial to the dispensational system, part of its sine qua non.2 Literal interpretation does not involve any voodoo or complicated machinations. "truly I say to you" (NASB) or "I tell you the truth" (NIV) indicates that what follows is extremely important. I have had 8 years of Greek and 3 of Hebrew. On the other hand, the dispensational hermeneutic, it seems to me, imposes an a priori definition of “literalness” upon the meaning and interpretation of Scripture.1 Commentary on Matthew 5:1,2 (Read Matthew 5:1,2) None will find happiness in this world or the next, who do not seek it from Christ by the rule of his word. Matthew 18:18 - Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. In Leviticus, for example, the Lord repeatedly commanded His people to “be holy; for I am holy” (Lev 11:44–45; 19:2; 20:7, 26). Even taken together, however, Hendriksen’s nine passages cannot support the weight of his conclusion. 16-18). They saw it as a precept, or rule; He saw it as a principle: “To the Pharisees, the essence of the Fourth Commandment was this precept: Thou shalt not work. Temptation of Jesus • Part 2 013. For all of us humans, that ship has sailed. Read Introduction to Matthew “ For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.” 5:18. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Original Meaning 14 Then you will find joy in your relationship to the Lord, and I will give you great prosperity, and cause crops to grow on the land I gave to your ancestor Jacob.” Know for certain that the Lord has spoken (Isaiah 58:13-14). At one extreme are scholars who find it unbiblical, such as Karlberg: JODT 11:32 (March 2007) p. 85 As one of the Ten Commandments, Sabbath keeping is usually considered part of the moral law. Sabbath in the Future. Thus, taken at face value, Scripture testifies that the commandment to keep the Sabbath is no longer binding as law. JODT 11:32 (March 2007) p. 88 Second, each Sabbath, the prince is to offer sacrifices (45:15). Read around the verse to get the context. 24 The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, 25 with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive [b]by him to do his will. “A study of the period from the death of Christ and the descent of the Spirit on Pentecost till the rapture of the church reveals most unmistakably that the Sabbath has been abolished.”14 Dispensationalists, however, are not the only ones to see it this way. Holy Spirit. This idea is fundamental to dispensationalism, but note its source. The bible proves even his closest followers/ apostles didn’t truly understand or comprehend all his teachings. In keeping with this understanding, Hendriksen argued that Romans 14:5 refers to the Jewish Sabbath, not to the Christian Sabbath, which is still governed by the fourth commandment: Justification is never “subjected to certain conditions.” There is no evidence for that whatsoever in Scripture. Matthew 5:18 Amplified Bible (AMP). One simply interprets Scripture as any other written text, taking it at face value within its context. In the twenty-first century, dispensationalism faces challenges from two opposing poles within evangelicalism. The Sabbath is the only one of the Ten Commandments not repeated to the church; thus, the New Testament does not assign any present In this case at least, its teachings are derived inductively from the text, not artificially imposed upon it. References to that future occur in Isaiah 66:23 and Matthew 24:20, but the most complete information comes from Ezekiel 36—46. Thus, the only viable explanation is that the new order is still future. Safeguarding one’s income is a strong incentive to believe any nonsense. The abolition of the Sabbath implies a second thing: that all of the commandments of the Mosaic code are now nullified. A few theologians are led by an honesty which is rare in the field to see what they were taught is not true. SO legalism is wrong because legalism says so? Although the sabbath ordinance is a binding obligation upon the people of God in all ages, the manner of observance changes over the course of covenant history, most notably between the Mosaic and New Covenants. But they were not for religious reasons. There is no bigger nonsense that humanity has come up with than the assertion that 1+1+1=1. 36:21, 32; 39:25). First, discover what the law meant to its original readers, how they understood it, and were supposed to respond to it (i.e. In Israel, keeping the Sabbath was more than an act of worship; it was a manifestation of loyalty. But that doesn’t mean we can now disregard the law. Several Mosaic commands, including nine of the Ten Commandments, are repeated to the church, but their status has changed. The Sabbath commandment does more than regulate the seventh day; in reality, it regulates the entire week: “Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. The ceremonial law deals with ritual worship; the civil, with the administration of justice in the nation; and the moral, with timeless ethical principles. And his commands are not burdensome. Romans 2:13 For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. Many scholars divide the Mosaic code into three parts: the ceremonial law, the civil (or social) law, and the moral law. As such, it still demands a response, a response that reflects the same principle, but expressed in a way appropriate to the new dispensation. (9-16) The respect to be paid to elders. The abrogation of Sabbath law testifies to this fact. Pre-exilic Israel was a theocracy, and its law applied to the nation, not just to its Jewish or believing population. Christian churches around the world tip the hat once a week to sun worship. Trevor, it appears that you have not read my studies in this chapter. Like the Borg in Deep Space Nine, Christianity assimilated the competition. Theological Explanation. Not believing that (what John said), Jesus avails one nothing. Go for it. The second runs afoul of the specific emphasis of Ezekiel 36–46. With God in charge, there is always time for what he needs to do, time to finish his work, and time to worship his God. The Sabbath issue is applied to the believer’s use of his time, the food issue, and to his reception of God’s provision. Matthew uses the word “heaven” as a euphemism for God’s name, to accommodate his Jewish readers’ sensitivities (23:22). This position is formalized in the Westminster Confession of Faith (21.7): Rev 22:18–19). God set aside the nation Israel with all the laws that pertain to her when he launched the church. There is only one master teacher, Lord Jesus Christ. There is no clear, explicit and unambiguous indication anywhere in the Bible, Old or New Testaments, that the Sabbath has been done away with. God’s commandments tell us what he wants us to do. A huge, new Temple will be built (40–44), a Temple far greater and glorious than that built by Zerubbabel (cf. The conclusion is inescapable. The word “until” introduces time into Jesus’ view of Scripture—Scriptures will exist until God accomplishes what He needs to accomplish. The First Disciples • Part 1 014. God’s law is ‘one strike and you’re out.’ Break one law and you’re as guilty as breaking them all. As part of this deliverance, the Lord will destroy the army of Gog in a conflict so great that it will take seven months to bury the dead (39:12). It defines sin for us. Grant, The New Revised Standard Version makes the sense even clearer: “set aside.” Thus, the law with its glory is set aside—not just the law, but the portion specific “written and engraved on stones.” Ryrie noted the significance of this phrase: .. regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths” (Col 2:16).45 In light of the preceding, one basic way for the Christian to apply the Sabbath is to regard his time as given and regulated by the Lord. "the Law" refers to the whole Old Testament, not just the Mosaic Law or the Pentateuch (cf. But this day is not specified as — nor restricted to — “the Sabbath” in the New Testament, either in Acts or in the Epistles. And I am to speak to you of its obligation, not as that obligation naturally arises out of its usefulness or blessedness, but as it is immediately imposed by God in his Word.”28 If the Sabbath—one of the Ten Commandments—is no longer binding, how can any part of the law still be in effect? Matthew Henry’s Bible Commentary (concise) << 1 Timothy 4 | 1 Timothy 5 | 1 Timothy 6 >> (Read all of 1 Timothy 5) Complete Concise Chapter Contents. - The relation of our Lord and his disciples to the religion of the day (continued); vide Matthew 5:17, note. Matthew 5:19 shows that whatever He did mean by these terms, Jesus clearly did not mean that certain laws are more significant than others: “Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven.” In other words, every violation is a major violation. Tons more resources, better tools, NIV84 and easier navigation. Scriptures, If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the.
