Christian views of the Old Covenant have been central to Christian theology and practice since the circumcision controversy in Early Christianity. There are differing views about the applicability of the Old Covenant among Christian denominations. Also referred to as Mosaic Law, Divine Law, Biblical Law, God's Law, or the Books of Moses, the term Old Covenant refers to the statements or principles of religious law and religious ethics codified in the first five books or Pentateuch of the Christian Bible. There are diverse views of the issues involved, with many traditional Christians of the view that only parts are applicable, many Protestants with the view that none is applicable and a minority with the view that all are still applicable to believers in Jesus and the New Covenant.
