Letter

Letter

in Rom 2:27,29means the outward form. The "oldness of the letter" ( 7:6 ) is a phrase which denotes the old way of literal outward obedience to the law as a system of mere external rules of conduct. In 2 Corinthians 3:6 , "the letter" means the Mosaic law as a written law. (See WRITING .)
