The Hope of the Law

Melanchton wrote the following in his introduction to Martin Chemnitz's exposition of the Decalogue (in chapter VI of his Loci Theologici):

"In the third place, the Law by implication quietly instructs us concerning the restoration of the human race and concerning eternal life. It further points out to what greater excellence we are recalled. For because God has repeated the word of the Law after the fall of our nature, He surely wills that the Law in some way be fulfilled. Therefore there will be a restoration of the human race and there will be an eternal life."
