Some Christians feel that they should keep Old Testament laws such as the seventh-day Sabbath and avoiding "unclean" meats. The articles in this e-book address that, beginning with the point that yes, Christians should obey God -- but are the Old Testament laws the laws that we should obey? The example of circumcision shows that God-given laws can be obsolete or kept in the spirit, not literally.

When Christians read the Old Testament, they are often puzzled. They find many laws that seem to be part of Christianity, and yet they also find many laws that no one obeys. Laws of sacrifice, rituals and civil laws are mixed together with laws that tell people how to get along with others. This series of Bible studies explores how a Christian can know which laws to keep.

In the books of Moses, God told his people to keep several annual festivals: Passover, Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles. Are these festivals still required for Christians? We analyze the biblical evidence and conclude that no, we do not have to keep them. Then what were they for? We look at how these festivals had details that symbolized the work of Jesus Christ.

In these articles, Paul Kroll examines whether the seventh-day Sabbath is a valid law for Christians. Since the only commands for the Sabbath are in the laws of Moses, he begins by exploring whether the Law of Moses has authority over Christians. It does not; Christians are to obey God based on the new covenant, not the old. Kroll then explores auxiliary questions about Genesis, Hebrews and Jesus.

Are Christians required to keep the seventh-day Sabbath? No. Mike Feazell explains that the Sabbath was a temporary law, designed (like various other old covenant laws) to point to Christ. Now that he has come, we do not need the pointer when we have the real thing. Just as the old covenant days reminded the Israelites of their salvation from Egypt, new covenant worship reminds us of Christ.

How did this change come about? These papers explore the evidence and offer hypotheses. In the 17th century, some Christians in England began observing the seventh-day Sabbath. How did that reversal come about?
