Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 27:4


27:4 Mount Ebal - The mount of cursing. Here the law is written, to signify that a curse was due to the violators of it, and that no man could expect justification from the works of the law, by the sentence whereof all men are justly accused, as being all guilty of the transgression of it in one kind and degree or other. Here the sacrifices are to be offered, to shew that there is no way to be delivered from this curse, but by the blood of Christ, which all these sacrifices did typify, and by Christ's being made a curse for us.

    Zionists and good Muslims

    Zionists and good Muslims believe that Judgments and curses in the Old Testament are not laws, but it is a curse for those that maketh the blind to wander out of the right way, but it is a curse for those that smiteth their neighbour secretly and it is a curse for those that taketh reward to slay an innocent person.

    Zionists and good Muslims believe that if you embrace all of the Old Testament you embrace all of the Sharia law.

    Zionists and good Muslims believe that if you embrace all of the Sharia law you embrace all of the Old Testament.
