The Sermon on the Mount – Christians and the Old Testament

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 […]

2 Corinthians – New Year’s Conflict Resolution

2 Corinthians – Apocalypse Now

Paul shares a fascinating story of ascending into heaven and receiving special knowledge he cannot reveal. While this sort of story may seem quite unique to most readers, it would have been compared with other ascension stories mentioned in the apocalyptic literature of that day.
