Wesley's Notes for John 1:17

1:17 The law - Working wrath and containing shadows: was given - No philosopher, poet, or orator, ever chose his words so accurately as St. John. The law, saith he, was given by Moses: grace was by Jesus Christ. Observe the reason for placing each word thus: The law of Moses was not his own. The grace of Christ was. His grace was opposite to the wrath, his truth to the shadowy ceremonies of the law. Jesus - St. John having once mentioned the incarnation {#Joh 1:14|,) no more uses that name, the Word, in all his book.

 

People's Bible Notes for John 1:17

Joh 1:17 The law was given by Moses. It was not a system of grace, nor could it make men perfect; in contrast with it the system of "grace and truth" (Joh 1:14) was given by Jesus Christ.

I think christ meant the old system namely the law was now fullfilled because grace and truth had arrived thro the messiah

The Law is what gives us our rights. If someone knocks out your tooth you have the right under the law to take their tooth out. If someone pokes out your eye the law gives you the right to poke out theirs. Rom 8:3 tells us that the law is weak because it has no power to save a person from hell. However under grace we have power, The power to not press charges. Grace not only forgives but it gives a gift on top. Christ not only forgave us our sins but he also gave us salvation.

First, the "Law of Moses" is the Law of God. Yeshua the logos, the word was the one they in the Old Testament. They looked forward to for their salvation through faith by grace. We look back for the same thing. The Law brought wrath. The "soul that sinneth shall die" Yeshua the messiah brought mercy, or we could say he bought salvation by his sacrifice, God's mercy and grace, he being God in the flesh. Thanks. Comm.
