Episode 19.3: The Ceremonial Law


The three-fold division of the law has come under a lot of criticism, can you briefly defend it from the Bible? Why does the Confession speak of the ceremonial law as being given to Israel “as a church”? What does the Confession mean by “church under age”? What is meant by the word “typical”? What were some of the ordinances given to Israel? How do we know this law is abrogated in the New Testament? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 19.3:

Beside this law, commonly called moral, God was pleased to give to the people of Israel, as a Church under age, ceremonial laws, containing several typical ordinances, partly of worship, prefiguring Christ, his graces, actions, sufferings, and benefits; and partly holding forth divers instructions of moral duties. All which ceremonial laws are now abrogated under the New Testament.
