Is the law something that was banished in the “Old Testament” era, or does it make sense to us today? What is the law and what was (or is) its purpose? And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God; And he took a great stone, and placed it there under the oak tree that was at the sanctuary of the Lord. This book of the law will not come out of your mouth, but you will meditate on it day and night, so that you may be attentive to act according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your prosperous way, and then you will have a good success. He said to them, “This is what the Lord has commanded: tomorrow is a day of solemn rest, a holy Sabbath unto the Lord; Cook what you`re going to cook, and cook what you`re going to cook, and whatever is left is set aside to be kept until morning. “Exodus” is a Latin word derived from the Greek exodos, the name given to the book by those who translated it into Greek Septuagint (LXX). The word means “exit”, “departure”. When he speaks of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what becomes obsolete and ages is ready to disappear. In this passage, we are told that Moses received the Ten Commandments. The commandments are the best-known part of the Mosaic law. But notice that God also gave “the law” with the stone tables or the Ten Commandments. That is, the law contains the Ten Commandments and a long list of detailed laws recorded in the book of Leviticus. Leviticus includes laws regarding: various sacrifices and offerings (Leviticus 1-7), dietary laws (Leviticus 11), motherhood (Leviticus 12), and leprosy (Leviticus 13-14).
There are laws about the Atonement (Leviticus 16-17), immoral relationships (Leviticus 18), and many other laws (Leviticus 19-27). In summary, the term “the law” usually refers to the Mosaic law. Deuteronomy contains a summary of the Mosaic law (Deuteronomy 30:10), and it was given just before the Israelites entered Canaan or the Promised Land. The phrase “the law of Moses” (for example, Joshua 8:31–32; 2 Kings 2:3; 14:6; Daniel 9:13; Malachi 4:4; John 7:23; Acts 13:39; Hebrews 10:28) appears throughout the Bible. The abbreviated version of the phrase is the “Mosaic Law.” The book is easily divided into two main sections: Four Events and Four People There are several ways to pronounce the Hebrew name Moses, for example, it would be pronounced Mausheh in the Ashkenazim of Western Europe, Moysheh in Eastern Europe, Musa in the Islamic countries of the North and Mesha in Yemen. The nicknames are therefore (usually with stress on the first syllable) Moishe, Moysh, Maish, Moeez, Mo, Moyshee, Musie (pronounced Mooziyeh). When Moses had written the words of this law in a book until they were finished, Moses commanded the Levites, who carried the ark of the Lord`s covenant, to say, “Take this book of the law, and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may remain there as testimony against you. Now we know that whatever the law says, it speaks to those who are under the law, so that all mouths can be stopped and the whole world can be held accountable to God. The discussion of “the law against grace” is common among followers of Christ who believe in the Bible. For some reason, we are struggling to reconcile what we think are two contradictory ideas.
Either Christianity is a matter of grace or it is a matter of right. The truth, like many “God-sized” concepts in the scriptures, is that both are integral parts of the gospel of Jesus Christ. But he did not kill the sons of the slayers, according to what is written in the book of the law of Moses, as the Lord commanded: “Fathers shall not be killed for sons, nor sons for fathers; But every man will be killed for his own sin. It may seem that the Apostle Paul is denigrating the law when he contrasts it with the good news of the gospel. But he hastens to deny it! We wouldn`t even know the difference between right and wrong, he says, without the law telling us what to do and what not to do. Above all, Paul wants it to be clear that God`s love fulfills the law. The law tells us what kind of life our love for God and neighbor would require. And Hilkiah, the high priest, said to Shaphan, the secretary, “I have found the book of the law in the house of the Lord.” And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.
Watch yourself so you don`t forget. After forty years of wandering in the wilderness, the Israelites were about to enter the promised land. Before they did, it was necessary (lest they forget what God had done and who they were) to be reminded of all that God had done for them, and of God`s holy law, which was responsible for their ability to remain in the land and function as God`s holy nation and priests` kingdom for the nations. was so important (Deuteronomy 4:1-8). As part of this theme or goal, the book also emphasizes the vital need to teach children to love and obey God. Deuteronomy ends with the renewal of God`s covenant with Israel (chapter 29), the appointment of Joshua as the new ruler (chapter 31), and the death of Moses (chapter 34).

Leviticus takes its name from the Septuagint and means “in relation to the Levites.” The Levites were the priests chosen by God to serve the nation. The book of Leviticus contains many laws that God has given to guide them in their work as priests for the worship of God. The contents of the law are disseminated under the books of Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers, and then repeated and completed in Deuteronomy. This includes: That the righteous requirement of the law may be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. that there may be no man, woman, family, or tribe among you whose hearts today turn away from the Lord our God to serve the gods of these nations. that there will be no root among you that bears poisonous fruit and wormwood.
When he hears the words of this curse, he will boast and say, “I have peace, though in the stubbornness of my heart I will destroy the land irrigated with drought. The Lord will never forgive him, but the Lord`s wrath and jealousy will burn against this man, and all the curses written in this book will rest upon him, and the Lord will blot out his name under heaven. Then the Lord will set him apart from all the tribes of Israel for adversity, according to all the covenant curses written in this book of the Law. The Law of Moses (Hebrew: תֹּורַת מֹשֶׁה Torat Moshe), also known as the Mosaic Law, refers primarily to the Torah or the first five books of the Hebrew Bible. They were traditionally thought to have been written by Moses, but most scholars today believe they had many authors.  And everyone gathered as one man in the square in front of the water gate. And they told Ezra, the scribe, to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded Israel.
