“Christ has abolished
With its commandments
One new humanity
In place of the two,
τὸν νόμον τῶν ἐντολῶν ἐν δόγμασιν καταργήσας, ἵνα τοὺς δύο κτίσῃ ἐν αὑτῷ εἰς ἕνα καινὸν ἄνθρωπον ποιῶν εἰρήνην,
Paul said, “Christ has abolished (καταργήσας) the law (τὸν νόμον) with its commandments (τῶν ἐντολῶν) and ordinances (ἐν δόγμασιν). Thus, he creates (κτίσῃ) in himself (ἐν αὑτῷ), one new humanity (εἰς ἕνα καινὸν ἄνθρωπον) in place of the two (ἵνα τοὺς δύο), so making peace (ποιῶν εἰρήνην).” Paul explained that Christ has abolished the Jewish law with its commandments and ordinances such as circumcision and the various dietary laws. Thus, God created one new man instead of two separate men. There would be peace, since they would not be any longer separated by God. Jews and gentiles would live in peace with Jesus Christ. Do you try to live in peace?
