In a discussion with a friend, the passage in Ephesians 2:14-16 came up to support the idea that the commandments of the Law (Torah) were done away with in Christ. In a superficial reading, this sounds true. Ephesians 2:14-16 NKJV 14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, 16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. To really understand these three verses, we need to ask, “What is the overall context of this passage?

Isaiah writes about a covenant of peace that will last forever. The context of this verse is the return of the children of Israel to the Promised Land. Isaiah 54:10 NKJV 10 For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed, But My kindness shall not depart from you, Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed," Says the LORD, who has mercy on you. What do you think of when you hear the words “A covenant of peace?” Do you think of tranquility and the absence of strife? This is part of the covenant of peace, but not all that it refers to.
