My confusion over the Old Law

    Where does your theology come from?

    Jesus saying 2,000 years later that faith is a WEIGHTIER matter of the Law is MORE INFORMATION. It is a clarification of the BIG PICTURE. The Pharisee's of Jesus day didn't buy when Jesus said the Law was about faith.

    The Bible has a timeline for a reason. God's revelation was REVEALED over time.

    You want to go back and rewrite history. Fact is God wanted the Hebrews to understand the weightier matters of the Law but they never even got to the obedience part.

    Muddle of mess people trying to rewrite and reinterpret history after the fact.

    The mess in Messianic. Fitting and understandable. They want to rewrite their mess up but it happened.

    Do you honestly want me to believe that up until Jesus said that faith was one of the weightier matters of the Law that no one had any idea that was true? Rather, repenting from doing what is right in our eyes and turning in submission to doing what is right in God's eyes has always been about trusting Him about how we should live. Every example of saving faith listed in Hebrews 11 is of someone in the OT, faith has always been associated with submitting to God's commands, and this was not something new in the NT.

    In all of these verse, sin is equated with a breach of faith of faithlessness:

    Leviticus 5:15, Leviticus 6:2, Numbers 5:6, Joshua 7:1, Joshua 22:16-31, 1 Chronicles 5:25, 1 Chronicles 9:1, 1 Chronicles 10:13, 2 Chronicles 28:22. 2 Chronicles 30:7, 2 Chronicles 33:19, Ezra 9:2-4, Ezra 10:2-10, Psalms 78:8, and Psalms 78:37,

    These verse faith is equated with obedience to God:

    Deuteronomy 28:1, Joshua 24:14, 1 Samuel 12:24, 1 Kings 2:4, 1 Kings 3:6, 2 Kings 20:3, 2 Chronicles 31:12-20, and Nehemiah 7:2.

    There are also many more verses that describe that faithfulness of God, so it is not like faith became an important attribute of God in the NT. There many people who are described as righteous or referred to as the righteous in the OT and every single one of them was righteous through faith.
