Disputations on the Judicial Laws of Moses


Pin It

Johannes Piscator (1546–1625) may not be a household name today, but that is hardly for want of an international, multi-generational legacy. His clear and firm stance on God’s justice as revealed in the judicial laws of Moses influenced giants of Reformed theology for nearly two centuries afterward. As the reader will learn, Piscator’s views were held by several key figures, helped shape the Puritan movements and governments in both England and America, and influenced the formation of the Westminster Confession of Faith.

It is time that this nearly-forgotten theologian, and his doctrine of the law, be resurrected and given a rightful consideration among the hall of fame of Reformers.

To that end, we present Piscator’s work on the judicial laws of Moses most often cited often by subsequent writers: the Appendix to his commentary on Exodus. Originally titled “Observations on Chapters 21, 22, 23, namely, an explanation of controversial questions about the abrogation of the judicial laws of Moses,” it is here published as a stand-alone book: Disputations on the Judicial Laws of Moses.

Adam translated Disputations on the Judicial Laws of Moses as part of his M.Div. program, and to help the church discover a neglected part of her theological heritage. Adam lives as a gentleman farmer in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with his wife and seven children.
