< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]   A[6]  

We must now consider the precepts of the Old Law; and (1) how they are distinguished from one another; (2) each kind of precept. Under the first head there are six points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether the Old Law contains several precepts or only one?

A[2] Whether the Old Law contains any moral precepts?

A[3] Whether it contains ceremonial precepts in addition to the moral precepts?

A[4] Whether besides these it contains judicial precepts?

A[5] Whether it contains any others besides these?

A[6] How the Old Law induced men to keep its precepts.
