This is the video version of the second part of this three part series. (Part one, explained the difference between the two sorts of law.) Here I claim that the distinction helps us make sense of Jesus seemingly contradictory teaching about Old Testament law.
I was a bit careless in narrating this one, note that the command not to kill in the ten commandments (Jesus first quote) is already apodictic, his second quote, “whoever murders shall be liable to judgment” makes it out to be casuistic (basically if someone murders then they should be tried, which opens questions about what “counts” as murder, etc.) which Jesus then treats as apodictic refusing the casuistry.
Here is the audio-only version of the podcast.
