Matthew 5:17ff. and reading the Old Testament

More than 5 minutes, so not a podcast for here, but if you want to listen to something longer (like 30 mins plus question time) I’ve posted this morning’s sermon to my blog: Matthew 5:17ff. : How to Read the Old Testament. Taking the “difficult” passage from the sermon on the mount and asking what does it mean to say that Jesus “fulfils” the Old Testament.

  1. Very interesting Tim! One of my favorite verses is Isaiah 40:31. “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew theirs trength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles – they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

    I think about that verse every time I run a marathon (7 so far!). Maybe someday I’ll run a marathon in New Zealand. πŸ™‚

    Somehow I missed your comment (I think blogger stopped emailing them to me) I wish I could have ever run a marathon, but even years ago I was not that fit, but the eagles’ wings bit really gets to me – flying has been one of my lifelong dreams πŸ™‚
