HISTORY of Christian Theology

(Died c. 1400 B.C.) Moses was a Hebrew prophet who led his people out of slavery in Egypt. He instituted the Mosaic Law consisting of both ritual and moral elements. Many Christians believe that this law is part of God’s covenant (old testament) with His people and was given to prepare them for the higher law offered through Christ (new testament). Moses introduced the concept that God is bound by his promises (covenant) and will bless his people if they comply with their end of the bargain (covenant). Previously, deity was viewed as capricious, so the dependability of God based on covenant was a new idea to most of the world of his day.
