This week's lesson: Christ's kingdom and the law

"Another way again of using the law lawfully, is when we keep it, but as a thing superfluous. And how as a thing superfluous? As the bridle is properly used, not by the prancing horse that champs it, but by that which wears it only for the sake of appearance, so he uses the law lawfully, who governs himself, though not as constrained by the letter of it" -- John of Chrysostom (AD 347-407), homily on I Timothy.
