Daniel Hays you will write a reflection on what this article has contributed to your understanding of the Christian’s relationship to the Mosaic Law. This initial thread should be at least 400 words.
You may discuss areas of agreement or disagreement, and/or specific issues raised in the article. Does the article help in showing how the Christian uses the law as an ethical and moral guide? Why or why not? This is a reflection on the article, not a summary of its argument, but you must deal with the specific ideas and issues raised in the article.
