When did the law begin?

Petrus Dathenus, The Pearl of Christian Comfort

Dathenus: First of all, you should realize that the law did not have its beginning when Moses received the two tables which were inscribed by the finger of God, and later explained in his five books. The law had its beginning when God created Adam in His image and implanted His law in Adam’s heart. The law of God was there then, as the image of God in which Adam was created, made as Paul says, in true righteousness and holiness.
