Law of God vs. The Law of Moses
The Law of God contained animal sacrifices: Luke 2:23 written in the Law of the Lord, “Every first-born male that opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord”, and to offer a sacrifice according to what was said in the Law of the Lord, “A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.”
“Law of the Lord” commands burnt offerings: 2 Chronicles 31:3: “He also appointed the king’s portion of his goods for the burnt offerings, namely, for the morning and evening burnt offerings, and the burnt offerings for the Sabbaths and for the new moons and for the fixed festivals, as it is written in the law of the Lord.”
The law told Israel to dwell in tents: “They found written in the law how the Lord had commanded through Moses that the sons of Israel should live in booths (tents) during the feast of the seventh month. ” (Nehemiah 8:14)
1 Chron 16:40 “burnt offering…written in the law of the lord”
2 Chronicles 35:26 “Now the rest of the acts of Josiah and his deeds of devotion as written in the law of the Lord”
Nehemiah 8:14 And they found written in the law how the Lord had commanded through Moses that the sons of Israel should live in booths (tents) during the feast of the seventh month.
“and bring to the house of our God the firstborn of our sons and of our cattle, and the firstborn of our herds and our flocks as it is written in the law, for the priests who are ministering in the house of our God. ” (Nehemiah 10:36)
John 1:17 For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.
John 7:19 “Did not Moses give you the Law, and yet none of you carries out the Law? Why do you seek to kill Me?”
Matthew 12:5 “Or have you not read in the Law, that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple break the Sabbath, and are innocent? (Cf Numbers 28:9-10)
The 10 commandments are NEVER called “the law of the Lord” or “law of God” in distinction from the “law of Moses” within a single passage.
The 10 commandments are called the Law of Moses:
Mk 7:9-10 For Moses said, “Honor your father and your mother”
When you read the 10 commandments, you read Moses: 2 Corinthians 3:3,15
Law of Moses is the law given at Horeb (10 commandments): Malachi 4:4 Remember the law of Moses My servant, even the statutes and ordinances which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel.
Law of Moses included everything God commanded: 1 Kings 2:3
