It was Christ who, amid thunder and flame, had proclaimed the law upon Mount Sinai.
The glory of God, like devouring fire, rested upon its summit, and the mountain quaked at the presence of the Lord.
The hosts of Israel, lying prostrate upon the earth, had listened in awe to the sacred precepts of the law. What a contrast to the scene upon the mount of the Beatitudes!
Under the summer sky, with no sound to break the stillness but the song of birds, Jesus unfolded the principles of His kingdom. Yet He who spoke to the people that day in accents of love, was opening to them the principles of the law proclaimed upon Sinai.
When the law was given, Israel, degraded by the long bondage in Egypt, had need to be impressed with the power and majesty of God; yet He revealed Himself to them no less as a God of love.
At His right hand was a fiery law unto them. Yea, He loveth the tribes; All their holy ones are in Thy hand: And they sat down at Thy feet; Everyone received of Thy words.
Page 46 It was to Moses that God revealed His glory in those wonderful words that have been the treasured heritage of the ages: The law given upon Sinai was the enunciation of the principle of love, a revelation to earth of the law of heaven.
It was ordained in the hand of a Mediator--spoken by Him through whose power the hearts of men could be brought into harmony with its principles.
God had revealed the purpose of the law when He declared to Israel, "Ye shall be holy men unto Me. As Jesus in His character and work represented to men the holy, benevolent, and paternal attributes of God, and presented the worthlessness of mere ceremonial obedience, the Jewish leaders did not receive or understand His words.
They thought that He dwelt too lightly upon the requirements of the law; and when He set before them the very truths that were the soul of their divinely appointed service, they, looking only at the external, accused Him of seeking to overthrow it.
The words of Christ, though calmly spoken, were uttered with an earnestness and power that stirred the hearts of the people. They listened for a repetition Page 47 of the lifeless traditions and exactions of the rabbis, but in vain.
They "were astonished at His teaching: The Pharisees noted the vast difference between their manner of instruction and that of Christ. They saw that the majesty and purity and beauty of the truth, with its deep and gentle influence, was taking firm hold upon many minds.
The rabbis saw that by His teaching the whole tenor of the instruction they had given to the people was set at nought. He was tearing down the partition wall that had been so flattering to their pride and exclusiveness; and they feared that, if permitted, He would draw the people entirely away from them.
Therefore they followed Him with determined hostility, hoping to find some occasion for bringing Him into disfavor with the multitudes and thus enabling the Sanhedrin to secure His condemnation and death. On the mount, Jesus was closely watched by spies; and as He unfolded the principles of righteousness, the Pharisees caused it to be whispered about that His teaching was in opposition to the precepts that God had given from Sinai.
While many are saying in their hearts that He has come to do away with the law, Jesus in unmistakable language reveals His attitude toward the divine statutes. Everything in nature, from the mote in the sunbeam to the worlds on high, is under law.
And upon obedience to these laws the order and harmony of the natural world depend. So there are great principles of righteousness to control the life of all intelligent beings, and upon conformity to these principles the well-being of the universe depends.
Angels are governed by its principles, and in order for earth to be in harmony with heaven, man also must obey the divine statutes. To man in Eden Christ made known the precepts of the law "when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy.
The mission of Christ on earth was not to destroy the law, but by His grace to bring man back to obedience to its precepts. The beloved disciple, who listened to the words of Jesus on the mount, writing long afterward under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, speaks of the law as of perpetual obligation.
He says that "sin is the transgression of the law" and that "whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law.Eragon is the first book in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher vetconnexx.comi, born in , wrote the novel while still in his teens.
