The Sermon on the Mount – Christians and the Old Testament

February 11, 2018

Summary

What is the relevance of the Old Testament for Christians? Do we follow it? Why do we still think the Ten Commandments are valid, but we also eat “unclean” animals? If it made the Hebrews unclean to wear mixed fabrics, why can we? If we stoned people in the OT, why don’t we today? This is a point of criticism from many people who don’t like Christianity. The accusation is that we “cherry pick” the Bible, but is that true?
