Even from the beginning when the Law was given, it was the circumcision of the heart that marks the children of the LORD. From the teaching that I grew up understanding (know this is not necessarily the same as the teaching I was given), I understood the circumcision of the heart to be what came from Jesus after he lived. But this was as early as Sinia – and earlier.
So, even when the Law was given it was not given to impart righteousness and status as children of the LORD. So what is a large purpose of the Law?
