  • Question about the OT

    Hi all

    I was talking to a Christian friend today who was telling me about a gruesome activity she saw online with stoning of a woman adulteress in a Muslim country.

    I mentioned to her that there are OT verses where God commanded adulterers be put to death by stoning (Leviticus 20:27 and Numbers 15:32-36).

    My friend questioned me that these verses even existed. She was quite shocked to hear it.

    My question is how do we answer someone who brings up the subject of the brutal punishments in the OT which God commanded?

    Obviously Jesus did away with the OT law.

    But did He? A lot of Christians say the OT and OT law is as relevant and applicable to us today as the NT.

    Interested in your thoughts on this.

    Come soon Lord Jesus - Take us Safely Home

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

        I have often heard it put that Jesus came to "fulfill" the Law.
