On this episode of Real Israel Talk Radio – Program Number 6, Episode 58, we’ll have a look into Paul’s statement from Colossians 2:14, “…having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.”
We will come to understand that Paul was NOT AT ALL speaking about the Mosaic Law (the Torah). Rather, he was specifically addressing Jewish-Hebrew biblical law referred to as the Laws of Acquisitions, Liens, and Discharges of Debt. All of this is expressed in ancient Israelite law and a good understanding of this can help us to understand what Paul was referring to in Colossians 2:14. We will also have a look at some additional biblical ideas concerning ransom and redemption. Prepare yourself to take down some notes.
