Judicial law in the nt

Judicial Law in the NT

1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge (condemn) nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God.

2 Timothy 4:1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:


Matthew 5 38 422

Matthew 5: 38-42

“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.”

Exodus 21:22-25 “…he shall pay as the judges determine. “But if any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, “eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, “burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.”Leviticus 24:19-20 ‘If a man causes disfigurement of his neighbor, as he has done, so shall it be done to him– ‘fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; as he has caused disfigurement of a man, so shall it be done to him.


Leviticus 19 18

Note:

Matthew 7:1 “Judge not, that you be not judged.”Final Judgment

1 Corinthians 2:15 “he who is spiritual judges all things”Discernment

We must be careful when we interpret and apply Scripture to a situation, because each passage has a very specific contextto help determine it’s correct application.


Matthew 5 38 423

Matthew 5: 38-42

“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’, “But I tell you not to resist (or stand against) an evil person.”


No revenge

No Revenge!

1 Thessalonians 5:14-15 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly (insubordinate), comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.

Romans 12:17a Repay no one evil for evil…


No revenge1

No Revenge!

1 Peter 3:8-9 “Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling (abusive speech) , but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.”


1 peter 2 21 24

1 Peter 2:21-24

“For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps: “Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth”; who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness– by whose stripes you were healed.


Do we ever resist evil

Do we ever resist evil?

Matthew 5: 38-39a “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’, “But I tell you not to resist (or stand against) an evil person.”

VS.

2 Thessalonians 3:6 But we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us. .


1 timothy 5 20

1 Timothy 5:20

Acts 8:20-23 But Peter said to him, “Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. “For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity (sin).”

“Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.”


Deception kills

Deception Kills!!!

1 Cor 6:9a Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived… 1 Cor15:33 Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” James 1:15b-16 …sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. 1 John 3:7-8a …let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. The one who practices sin of the devil…2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.


Titus 2 14 15

Titus 2:14-15

(Jesus)… gave Himself for us, that He might redeem (set free) us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.


Titus 1 9 11

Titus 1:9-11

…holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict. For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision (the common error back then), whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole households, teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain.


Jesus rebukes

Jesus Rebukes!

Matthew 23:33 “Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?”Matthew 16:23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”Matthew 11:20 Then He began to rebuke the cities in which most of His mighty works had been done, because they did not repent


Galatians 2 11 14

Galatians 2:11-14

“Now when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood (anthistemi) him to his face, … I said to Peter before them all, “If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews?”

Compare these two passages…

Matthew 5:39 “But I say to you, do not resist (anthistemi) an evil person…

A time to resist…


What do we do

What do we Do?

Summary: We must turn the other cheek when the offender is not a follower of Jesus, or they have simply stumbled into a sin against us, but we must take a stand against ongoing, unrepentant sin when it is revealed in the church.


2 thessalonians 3 6

2 Thessalonians 3:6

But we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us.

Not Optional…

Matthew 23 23 24

Matthew 23:23-24

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith.

1 corinthians 5 11 13

1 Corinthians 5:11-13

But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner–not even to eat with such a person. For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person”


Matt 18 15 17 luke 17 3 4

Matt 18:15-17 & Luke 17:3-4

“Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents (turns from His sin) , forgive him. “And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.”“Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. “But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ “And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector” .


Revelation 2 20

Revelation 2:20

(This church was rebuked by Jesus because they allowed someone to teach and entice His servants to commit sin)

“Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.


2 john 1 9 11

2 John 1:9-11

Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.


2 timothy 2 16 17

2 Timothy 2:16-17

“Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”

Heb 10:26-29, 2 Peter 2:20-22

“For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment…”

The sermon on the mount jesus rebuilds the moral law matthew 5 38 42

1. An “Eye for and Eye and a Tooth for a Tooth” came from the Judicial Law that governed the nation of Israel and it was never meant to justify vengeance.

2. We must forgive and turn the other cheek to the stumbling believer or the deceived unbeliever, but we must take a stand against ongoing unrepentant sin when it is revealed in the church.

3. We must not seek revenge, instead we are to show mercy and pray that the wicked will turn from their wicked ways.

4. We must meekly allow the Lord to dispense final justice, rather than demand it for ourselves.

5. We must be careful with how and when we give, but we should mercifully give to those who are in true need.
