Law of Moses

Additional Links
Is the whole body of the Mosaic legislation (1 Kings 2:3 ; 2 Kings 23:25 ; Ezra 3:2 ). It is called by way of eminence simply "the Law" (Heb. Torah, Deuteronomy 1:5 ; 4:8,44 ; 17:18,19 ; 27:3,8 ). As a written code it is called the "book of the law of Moses" (2 Kings 14:6 ; Isaiah 8:20 ), the "book of the law of God" (Joshua 24:26 ).

The great leading principle of the Mosaic law is that it is essentially theocratic; i.e., it refers at once to the commandment of God as the foundation of all human duty.
