For some, 1 Timothy contains essentially non-Pauline comments concerning the Mosaic law. My general contention is that the concentrated assertions regarding the law that we find in 1 Timothy are compatible with the scattered claims about the law that we find in the undisputed Pauline letters. In this paper, I aim to demonstrate that the author of 1 Tim 1:8-11 and the author of Rom 6-8 are harmonious on at least three points: 1) the goodness of the law, 2) the group for whom the law was instituted, and 3) the function of the law within this intended group. From the outset, the author of 1 Tim 1:8-11 will project his voice. Romans 6-8 will be a crescendo passage, gradually increasing in volume. By the end of the paper, we will discover that “Paul” and Paul are playing the same torah tune.
