One of the reasons the LAW was imposed upon the Israelites is because of their rebellion against the Gospel of God, the same Gospel David wrote about (Acts 2:29-31), Abraham believed (Gal 3:8), and Peter, Paul, and Jesus preached and the last thing this condemned world will hear via an Angel sent by God (Rev 14:6) to give everyone one last opportunity to ...

Lev 16:16: Thus he shall make atonement for the Holy Place, because of the uncleannesses of the people of Israel and because of their transgressions, all their sins. And so he shall do for the tent of meeting, which dwells with them in the midst of their uncleannesses. It pertains to all the sin that the Israelites could commit and did commit. The words ...

The law is a teacher. God chose to give written laws to the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption as sons; theirs the divine glory and the covenants; theirs the giving of the law, the temple worship, and the promises. 5Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them proceeds the human descent of Christ, who is God over all. Romans 9: 4-5 It is being observed ...

The people of Israel rejected a direct relationship with God. In the story of Moses and the Ten Commandments, the Israelite people came upon God as He sat upon Mt. Sinai in the form of a cloud of fire and thunder, and when He offered to make them a nation of priests who had a personal relationship with Him, they said "no", and told Moses to go up ...

From the tenor of the question and the content of the comments, I suggest that this question be best addressed as an apparent contradiction between two verses: Gal 3:19 - Why then was the law given? It was added because of transgressions, until the arrival of the seed to whom the promise referred. It was administered through angels by a mediator. Rom 4:15 - ...

The immediate context of the passage implies that it was the transgressions of the children of Israel who were the recipients of the law at Mt. Sinai. However, the text seems non-specific, and the larger context shows it could certainly apply to any or all transgressions. Consider the passage in context. KJV Promises to Abraham and to Us Gal 3:16 Now to ...

Paul explained in Romans 7:7-9 that without the Law people didn't recognize that they sinned. Paul mentioned covet because it was an internal sin of the mind and harder to avoid compared to keeping the laws through external actions. Transgressions is another word for sins. As Paul describes below, the Law was given so that people would know they sinned/...

In ministering to the Galatians who were gentile converts, Paul encountered interference from those that taught that circumcision was a requirement for salvation. The false teaching troubled (inflicted emotional distress and confusion on) the new converts. ...there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. Galatians 1:7 Seeking the ...

You refer to "the Pauline perspective" in your comments, that it "prevents commentators from reading Deuteronomy, Ezekiel and Habakkuk as saying the same thing. Really - you need to make the case for that claim. What commentators, precisely? And what grounds are there for claiming that "the Pauline perspective" hinders anyone from ...

Most sources (eg, Bible margins and footnotes, plus USB5 appendix, etc) readily acknowledge that Hab 2:4 is quoted by Rom 1:17, Gal 3:11, and Heb 10:38 (this last one only in the Byzantine text). However, neither I nor any of the the references I examined could see any immediate semantic connection between the above verses and Deut 16:20 and Eze 18:19.
