LAW IN THE ETHOS OF THE OLD AND THE NEW TESTAMENT
The article talks of an evolution of a Biblical notion of Law. The author shows the way, the meaning of the Hebrew term “Torah” was transformed throughout the Pentateuch, in the prophetic tradition and in the wisdom books. He puts into analysis the relationship between the Judaism as a religious formation and the Law as a code. The Law included basic regulations to the moral, religious and political life of Israel.
The second part talks of the ethics of the New Testament and of a new interpretation of the Law by Jesus. According to the author, the New Law based on the Greek notion of agape is inherent in the whole New Testament despite the differences between the gospels and Corpus Paulinum.
