 The conscience always under the burden of a service unaccomplished by man and a righteousness unsatisfied in God-these ordinances were blotted out. In them the Jew had put his signature, so to speak, to his guiltiness; but the obligation was destroyed and nailed to the cross of Christ. We receive liberty as well as life and pardon. (Colossians 2 by J.N. Darby)
 In the days of Moses, Israel put their “handwriting” (their signature, so to speak) to the obligations of the Law, stating, “All the words which the Lord hath said will we do” (Ex. 24:3)….History sadly records that they failed to keep the Law in every way (Acts 7:53). Hence, those ordinances “stood out against” them in an accusatory sense. (Hindrances to Carrying Out the Truth of the Mystery by B. Anstey)
 “Nailing it to the cross.” This refers to the charge that stood out against the Jews for failing to keep the Law. It was cancelled and the statement of that fact was made a public declaration. It is an allusion to the Roman custom of nailing a statement of a criminal’s crime to the cross on which he died to indicate to all the nature of that person’s offence. (See John 19:19-22.) (Hindrances to Carrying Out the Truth of the Mystery by B. Anstey)
 The only effect of this handwriting must be against you: it is very strongly expressed; and the apostle repeats it in a double form. These Colossian saints were not so far gone in legalism as to put Christians under the ten commandments as a rule of life. To bring in ordinances even, was not so ruinous; because they at least derive their entire value from the truth of Christ, couched and shadowed forth in them; whereas, there is nothing like making a rule of life of the law for awakening the spirit of self-righteousness in the confident, and of distrust and despair in more diffident souls, reversing exactly the way of grace with both. The apostle insists, that even to let in the principle of ordinances now is to renounce the fundamental truth of death and resurrection (Notes on Colossians 2:13-19 by W. Kelly)
