A better system of righteousness was yet to come!

"The Old Covenant, of course, had pointed to Law as the best path (for that time) toward justification. The complete system of law, delivered from Mount Sinai, is the heart of the Old, Mosaic, Covenant (incidentally, it is one complete legal system; the Old Testament does not allow us to break it down into bits such as 'the ceremonial law' and so on). But as time wore on we see that none, yes, not even Moses and Aaron - and certainly not people like David - were able to fully keep this law, and we start to find indicators that a better system of righteousness was yet to come"

Praise God!!!!!!!!!!!

Amen Craig!

2 Cor 3:7 But if the ministry of death, having been engraved in letters in stone was with glory (so that the sons of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses because of the glory of his face), which was being done away; 8 shall not the ministry of the Spirit be with more glory? 9 For if the ministry of condemnation is glorious, much more does the ministry of righteousness exceed in glory.

We are under the New Covenant if ever increasing glory!!

In Grace
