In this post I want to share a podcast episode from my old Ekklesia podcast. Ekklesia is a transliteration of the New Testament Greek word most often translated “church” in our Bibles. It’s a podcast I used to do in order to think out loud about some of the differences I see between many of our institutional churches and the church Jesus is planting. In this episode, I talk about the church’s preoccupation with Moses, the Ten Commandments, and the Old Covenant. We bring elements of Moses and the Old Covenant into the New Covenant and make them binding truths on believers today.
IMPORTANT: My views on the Law of Moses being abolished have changed since recording this episode. I no longer believe that. I believe that as believers, we have died to the Law, the Law has not died. We are not under the Law, and Christ is the end of the Law for all who believe. I decided to post the episode here anyway because of the other topics I discussed.
Push ‘play’ and join me as we talk about Jesus’ superiority over Moses and the priority of the New Covenant over the Old.
