Editorial Reviews

Review

"Here Edmund Clowney writes simply but profoundly. Nobody had a deeper understanding of how all Scripture witnesses to Christ. I highly recommend this book for adult classes in churches, and for all who seek a better knowledge of the Lord Jesus." --John M. Frame, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando campus Author of the award-winning Doctrine of God

"The great expounder of biblical theology, Clowney guides us between the errors of lawless license and graceless legalism through this magnificent study of the Ten Commandments." --Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary Author of Christ-Centered Preaching

"Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill." Matthew 5:17

Edmund Clowney, by way of introduction, discusses the confusion that the New Scofield Bible brought in the 1900s in its misapprehension of this divine disclosure - and it was great. 'We tend to think of the Law as rules to obey, but Jesus sees the Law as something to fulfill. Jesus came to fulfill the Law and the prophets.' p 7 Calvin saw the law as more than just the Ten Commandments given to Israel, but a moral and internal law given as a rule to all people: "...the very things contained in the two tables...dictated to us by the internal law, which as already been said, is in a manner written and stamped on every heart." Institutes 2:1:3

When Biblical Theology maintains that Christ is the end of the Law, it does so because, in truth, is does not mean that He came to put an end to the Law, but that He is the goal [Gk: telos], or the end of the Law. When Jesus spoke the following words we see He was, by definition, summarizing the Ten Commandments - and re-affirming their import into the New Testament in Matthew 22:

37 "Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.'
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second like it is: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself'."

"The first and great commandment" Christ appoints in verse 37 is, in fact, a summary of the first four of the Ten Commandments that deal exclusively with our worship of Creator God and the sanctity of God's Person and holy Name.

The teachings of Jesus on the 10 Commandments are extreme! The young rich ruler got it from Jesus. Remember the commandments he told the young ruler. We need to remember them also. Buy all three books!

Clowney is a gifted writer and his skill shows in this book. He often make the reader think much more deeply about the 10 commandments than he previously may have done. His introduction to each commandment is engaging and brings the need for understanding the commandment into the modern context. He also avoids both legalism and license. The reason I give this book 3 stars is because often the author strays too far from the actual subject. For example, on the 5th commandment Clowney spends about two pages talking about infant baptism. While not being a paedobaptist, I can normal understand where peadobaptists are making their arguments from. I cannot follow how this issue has anything to do with "honor your father and mother," as the infant does not make that choice. The chapter on the tenth commandment, the shortest in the book (7 pages), lacks depth. This is surprising since it was really Jesus' application of this commandment to the 6th and 7th commandment in His Sermon on the Mount that broke the norms of the day.

In How Jesus Transforms the Ten Commandments, author, Edmund Clowney sets out to show the reader how Jesus fulfills the Law and how He expands it (ie. Jesus expands adultery from an outward act to a lustful heart) and transforms it.

The book is divided into eleven chapters with an introduction followed by individual chapters for each of the Ten commandments. Clowney does a wonderful job of guiding the reader through each commandment, showing its original intent and then showing how it points to Christ and how Christ fulfills the law by obeying it and transforming it. One of the better short examples of how he does this is found in chapter eleven on the Tenth commandment. Clowney says, "When we consider hoe Jesus has transformed this command, we realize that Jesus is asking of us no less desire, but infinitely more! Jesus commands us to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness with all our heart." What Clowney is showing here is that the original command is simply a command not to do something. If my neighbor has a boat and I don't have desires for his boat then I am following this command. Jesus expands this by saying it is not good enough for me to not desire my neighbors things, I should be desire God's things (His kingdom to come and His will to be done). This is what Clowney means by transforming. Just in case the reader comes away with the thought that they must work "extra hard" to keep God's commands, Clowney ends the book with a great conclusion:

Christian, take heart, Christ has accomplished the law for you, and it is in the confidence and the freedom that Christ brings you that you can, by the power of his Spirit, please God and live out in your own life what the will of God demands of you. You will not do this perfectly.
