Sources of Christian Law

Source of Christian Law :

The four major sources of Christian law are:

Scriptures i.e the Holy Bible





The Holy Bible is made up of books that were written over a period of 1000 years. It contains letters, history, genres, and poetry. The Bible can be divided into two sections: the first is the old testament and the second is the new testament which contains the life of Jesus and the life of early Christian society. Some Christian consider every word of the Bible correct whereas some consider the literature as the major ground for a moral foundation.


Initially, traditions were interpreted as the teachings of Jesus Christ to his followers and then the followers recited the teachings to the Christian people, today it has come to be associated with the approaches that guide the of different Christian groups. Orthodox Christians gave high importance to traditions.


Reasons like tradition have very high importance among the Christians, it is sometimes used to get an understanding of the Bible, there might occur situations when Bible and Traditions might come in conflict with reasons but for that reason would be neglected.


Some people also consider experiences as an important source to understand Christian theology. Experience includes people’s thinking, their thoughts, and their five senses. The reason behind including experience as a source of Christian Theology is that whatever happens with the individual in his life is real, it was felt that Christianity must incorporate these experiences in it as well.
