Paul & Moses

January 15, 2012

The risen Lord (II Corinthians 5:15) committed to Paul, the apostle, the dispensation of grace (Romans 16:25), dealing with God’s Heavenly purpose the “Body of Christ” (Ephesians 3:2; Colossians 1:25; Ephesians 3:9; I Corinthians 9:17). In contrast, the dispensation of law was committed to Moses, dealing with Israel and the Nations – God’s earthly purpose. The student of the Bible should not fail to recognize its two major divine purposes. Nothing but confusion can arise from reading into one dispensation that which relates to another (II Timothy 2:15). As the law of Moses was authoritative over Israel, so Pauline revelation is equally authoritative over the church, the Body of Christ.
