cl chap. 19 pp. 192-196 pars. 9-17 “God’s Wisdom in a Sacred Secret”


Paragraph 9

9, 10. (a) What covenant did Jehovah make with the nation of Israel, and what protection did that covenant provide? (b) How did the Law demonstrate mankind’s need for a ransom?
(Ephesians 2:14) For he is our peace, the one who made the two groups one and destroyed the wall in between that fenced them off.

Paragraph 10

9, 10. (a) What covenant did Jehovah make with the nation of Israel, and what protection did that covenant provide? (b) How did the Law demonstrate mankind’s need for a ransom?
(Galatians 3:19) Why, then, the Law? It was added to make transgressions manifest, until the offspring should arrive to whom the promise had been made; and it was transmitted through angels by the hand of a mediator.
(Hebrews 10:1-4) For since the Law has a shadow of the good things to come, but not the very substance of the things, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered year after year, make those who approach perfect. 2 Otherwise, would not the sacrifices have stopped being offered, because those rendering sacred service once cleansed would have no consciousness of sins anymore? 3 On the contrary, these sacrifices are a reminder of sins year after year, 4 for it is not possible for the blood of bulls and of goats to take sins away.
(Galatians 3:24) So the Law became our guardian leading to Christ, so that we might be declared righteous through faith.

Paragraph 11

11. What glorious prospect did the Law covenant offer Israel, but why did that nation as a whole lose out?
(Exodus 19:5, 6) Now if you will strictly obey my voice and keep my covenant, you will certainly become my special property out of all peoples, for the whole earth belongs to me. 6 You will become to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you are to say to the Israelites.”
