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:
A1 Whether all the moral precepts of the Old Law belong to the law of nature?
A2 Whether the moral precepts of the Old Law are about the acts of all the virtues?
A3 Whether all the moral precepts of the Old Law are reducible to the ten precepts of the decalogue?
A4 How the precepts of the decalogue are distinguished from one another?
A5 Their number;
A6 Their order;
A7 The manner in which they were given;
A8 Whether they are dispensable?
A9 Whether the mode of observing a virtue comes under the precept of the Law?
A10 Whether the mode of charity comes under the precept?
A11 The distinction of other moral precepts;
A12 Whether the moral precepts of the Old Law justified man?
