Not Under the Law: Paul and the Truth
An excerpt from Chapter 1: Paul's Intent
"What goes through your mind when you hear the phrase, 'not under the law'? The apostle Paul wrote these words, and Bible-believing Christians accept them as truth. The question is whether this phrase is understood the way the apostle meant it."
"Many Christians have been taught that Jesus came to do away with the law. They think 'not under the law' means the law does not apply to Christians. However, that would be equivalent to thinking that Christians are 'above the law'."
"We need to make sure our understanding agrees with all of God's word. If our interpretation of Paul's phrase contradicts other Scriptures, then we must question our interpretation."
This little book is quite amazing. Kent and Jodi Smith go through all the usual arguments, all the erroneous interpretations of today's church, and any conceivable misunderstanding of anything and everything the Apostle Paul wrote. They lay it out plain and simple with tons of Scripture being cross-referenced. This book is easy to follow, and it clearly shows how much the man that was Saul of Tarsus truly loved YHWH, the Torah, and especially his Messiah. As Peter remarks about Paul's writing "in which are some things hard to be understood," (2 Peter 3:16f), these authors clear away any confusion about "Paul and the Truth."
