“For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. For the Law as given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ” (John 1:16-17).
We are beneficiaries of God’s gracious guidance. The Law received at Sinai was an act of God’s grace, describing for a redeemed people how they are to live in community with their Creator, the Lord their God, and one another. What tablets of stone failed to capture, however, would be revealed in the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. It’s only in the grace of a personal relationship with him that the grace of the Law is truly appreciated.
