Bible Term: Law of God

The Law of God is a set of rules, commands, and instructions which God revealed to Moses. God gave the law, whereas Moses was the one who documented it and communicated it to the Israelites. As such, the Law of God is sometimes referred to as the Law of Moses.

The Law of God is recorded in the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy, forming the basis of belief for the Jewish people.

Jesus, however, came to fulfill this law (Matthew 5:17).
