The Pentateuch, also known as the Torah, the Books of Moses and the first five books of the Bible, is the covenant that God made with Israel. Much of the covenant is historical prologue describing God’s relationship with people, particularly with Israel, a people chosen for a special purpose. In this narrative context God communicates the stipulations of the covenant. These are the laws or the dos and don’ts.
With all the detail on how Israel ought to live out their covenant relationship, it can be easy to miss the Mosaic principle that covenant relationship with holy God only comes as a gift of grace. Not wanting to miss this forest of grace while focusing on individual trees, we need to pay attention to those important moments where God communicates his grace.
Below are five “monuments of grace” you want to be sure not to miss along the way. For more on Grace in the Law, check out the Interpreting the Pentateuch podcast from the menu above.
This is not intended to be an exhaustive list. I chose one monument of grace from each book of the Pentateuch to show the consistent, comprehensive truth that relationship with God must be grounded on a free gift of grace.
There are other monuments to grace in the Pentateuch. What would you include in this list?
