If the Law was not given to Gentiles, then how did Y’shua save Gentiles from the condemnation of the Law?

Kevin Jones originally shared:

… If the (law), this includes the 10 commandments, were given to Israel, how did Yeshua (Jesus) deliver us from a law that was never given to gentiles? Think about it. Every Sunday morning there is a gentile preacher some where, saying (Jesus) came, and died to deliver us from a law that the bible never says was given to gentiles. The scriptures say Yeshua (Jesus) is the Passover to those to whom Passover is given.  If the church and Israel are separate entities, how does his death benefit a gentile church to whom his law was never given? Think about it.

Shalom

  1. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law,DO BY NATURE THE THINGS CONTAINED IN THE LAW,these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves. WHICH SHOW THE WORK OF THE LAW WRITTEN IN THEIR HEART, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) (Rom 2:14,15)
    Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, BUT ALSO OF THE GENTILES?
    And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my
    people;THERE SHALL THEY BE CALLED THE CHILDREN OF THE LIVING GOD.
    What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have
    attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.
    (Rom 9:24,26,30)

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond. It is clear that you have a kind heart and that you love our Lord!

      I had already been preparing a post that discusses exactly the passage you referred to (or at least a good portion of it), so I have gone ahead and posted it – it’s still kinda long and involved, but hopefully you can wade through it. (“Does Paul Really Teach….”)

      I would be very interested in hearing more of your comments. I am happy to answer questions, though I am not at all interested in debating or arguing.

      I have no power to convince people or argue them into any sort of doctrinal stand – nor am I interested in doing so.

      My posts are ‘just me’ putting down on paper what I am learning – I only publish it as an encouragement to other folks to lay aside doctrines and traditions (and assumptions), allowing the Word to speak for itself and on its own terms. By doing that, I have learned more in the last couple of years than I had in the previous forty! (It has been thrilling to find so many other believers who are having the same experience! Especially because scripture usually brings us to the same conclusions!)

      Thanks again, and shalom.
