Is The Law Sin?

Romans 7:7-12 Given what Paul has already said about the Law increasing transgression and arousing sinful passions, he now tackles the obvious question: "Is the law sin (or evil)?" He immediately denies that it is, but what are the reasons he provides? What are the two kinds of knowledge of sin which Paul discusses? How does sin take us from one kind of knowledge to the other? Why does Paul choose to use the tenth commandment prohibiting covetousness as his example of how the Law reveals sin? What does Paul mean that he was "alive" before the commandment and "dead" after the commandment? How was sin "dead" before the Law and "alive" after the Law? What are two ways that sin deceives us through the Law? What does the Law teach us about sin that we did not know before? (62 min)
