Are some sins more serious than others? What does the Bible says about connecting punishments with crimes? Do the portions of law in the Bible constitute merely moral advice? Or are they the legitimate basis for modern legal theory?
The 11-volume Old Testament Law Collection explores the endless connection between Old Testament texts and conceptions of law. Many of the legal texts in the Bible serve as the basis for the origins of Western law and civilization. They are models from which Reformation and Enlightenment political theory are drawn. These texts are integral for how we understand covenant theology, how we interpret large swaths of the Pentateuch, and how we formulate modern conceptions of justice. This collection will benefit anyone interested in understanding Old Testament law—especially the legal texts in the Pentateuch—and it will provide clarity for anyone seeking to understand law within the context of theology.
