Abstract (copy 1)

Alexander Campbell's "Sermon on the Law" was important in the rise of the
Stone-Campbell  Restoration  Movement  and  influenced  some  associated  with
that movement to neglect the OT. This paper analyzes Campbell's approach to
the Mosaic regulations, pointing out strengths and weaknesses in his "dispensa-
tional" approach to the law. The inadequacy of Campbell's approach is shown by
examining cases in Romans, Corinthians, and the letters to Timothy where Paul
uses Mosaic laws to derive moral and religious principles for the Christian.
