For the law produces wrath. And where there is no law, there is no transgression.
If anyone disregards Moses’ law, he dies without mercy, based on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
2 Corinthians 3:6
He has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter, but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit produces life.
Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom you have set your hope.
“We have a law,” the Jews replied to him, “and according to that law He must die, because He made Himself the Son of God.”
and everyone who believes in Him is justified from everything that you could not be justified from through the law of Moses.
Once I was alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life
and I died. The commandment that was meant for life resulted in death for me.
For sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, deceived me, and through it killed me.
Therefore, did what is good cause my death? Absolutely not! On the contrary, sin, in order to be recognized as sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that through the commandment, sin might become sinful beyond measure.
For Moses writes about the righteousness that is from the law: The one who does these things will live by them.
But the law is not based on faith; instead, the one who does these things will live by them.
For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions operated through the law in every part of us and bore fruit for death.
What should we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin if it were not for the law. For example, I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, Do not covet.
And sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me coveting of every kind. For apart from the law sin is dead.
