Paul and the Law - The 2011 Moore College Lectures

In August of 2011 Dr Brian Rosner gave the Annual Moore College Lectures on the Topic of "Paul and the Law: Keeping the Commandments of God." (Brian Rosner is a Senior Lecturer in New Testament and Ethics at Moore College.) I only got to one of the lectures, but I have enjoyed listening since they have been available on the Moore College website.

The lectures are a great resource for reflecting on how to understand the role of the law in the New Testament in general and in Paul's letter's in particular. They tie in nicely with previous posts on the role of the law according to the letter to the Hebrews.

Since the files on the Moore College Library site are a little hard to access, I thought I would post the links here (in order). The first lecture was a public overview (which I will call Lecture 0). Each lecture had an accompanying handout which is available as a PDF. The lectures were:

Lecture 0: Paul and the Law: Keeping the Commandments of God.   PDF Here.

Lecture 1: Circumcision is Nothing: Paul and the Puzzle of the Law.   PDF Here.

Lecture 2: "Not Under the Law": Paul's Repudiation of the Law as Legal CodePDF Here.

Lecture 3: "Under the Law of Christ": Paul's Replacement of the LawPDF Here.

Lecture 4: "Witness to the Gospel": Paul's Reappropriation of the Law as ProphecyPDF Here.

Lecture 5: "Written for Our Instruction":  Paul's Reappropriation of the Law as Wisdom.  PDF Here.

The Moore College Library online resource page is here.

Please let me know if there are any problems with the links.  Enjoy ...
