Greg Machacek: In fact, there isn’t an old law and a new law; there’s an
old covenant (of the law) and a new covenant, of grace.  “Old Law” is
redundant; the word “Law” all by itself would have conveyed the notion
old.  “Old” here is what in newspaper verse we can recognize as filler.

Jeffery Hodges: But one finds in the New Testament these opposing
expressions: "old law" vs. "new law" and "law of works" vs. "law of grace,"
and they are used throughout the Christian tradition all the way down to
our time. The term "old" need not be considered mere "filler."
