There are 613 commandments found in the Old Testament, and the people found in the Scripture rebelled against all of them. It had such a polarizing effect that people became severe liberals or overbearing legalists, which is not much different than the world we have today. People have become afraid of the rules because they lead to judgment and retribution. However, those commandments were never meant to have the final say—Jesus did. Every commandment pointed to our need of Jesus, who came to fulfill our need for perfection, identity, fulfillment, and ultimate need to be good.
