This chapter explores the scriptural basis of the notion of divine freedom as law, and in particular, the relationship between this account of God and the character of rest and security that it affords persons as they operate within this law. Also discussed is how this focus on the rest and order of covenantal existence generates a new conception of the meaning of divine wisdom and judgment and the connection between this account of judgment and the non-teleological character of divine forgiveness.

Keywords: abiding; rest; judgment; atonement; forgiveness; sabbatical; wisdom
