We must now consider each kind of precept of the Old Law: and (1) the moral precepts, (2) the ceremonial precepts, (3) the judicial precepts.
Under the first head there are twelve points of inquiry:
A Whether all the moral precepts of the Old Law belong to the law of nature?
A Whether the moral precepts of the Old Law are about the acts of all the virtues?
A Whether all the moral precepts of the Old Law are reducible to the ten precepts of the decalogue?
A How the precepts of the decalogue are distinguished from one another?
A Their number;
A Their order;
A The manner in which they were given;
A Whether they are dispensable?
A Whether the mode of observing a virtue comes under the precept of the Law?
A Whether the mode of charity comes under the precept?
A The distinction of other moral precepts;
A Whether the moral precepts of the Old Law justified man?
