    Jesus and the Law

    Jesus and the Law

    Christians may be tempted just to ignore the Old Testament, or set it aside. Jesus didn't do so; in fact, he said in Matthew he came to fulfill the law. What does that mean?  What does it look like for us? Take a listen.

    Are you sure that's in the Bible?

    Are you sure that's in the Bible?

    Turn with me to Acts 8:37. Oh, wait - Help! There are verses missing from my Bible! In a Christian subculture that tries to maintain that the Bible we have now is exactly the Bible that believers have always had, how do we deal with textual variations?  Easy: we accept that we have the Bible God wants us to have, and we apply the Wesleyan Quadrilateral. The Quadrilateral is Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience. Scripture is primary, but we cannot access scripture without the other three. United Methodists trust God and one another so that through tradition, reason, and experience, we can read the Bible faithfully and find there everything necessary for salvation.

    Reading Scripture about Reading Scripture, part 3

    Reading Scripture about Reading Scripture, part 3

    How is your relationship with the Bible? For the 3rd week in a row, we have read scriptures about people reading scriptures. First, Jesus, then King Josiah, and now this week, an Ethiopian Eunuch. Don't know what a eunuch is? Go ask your dad. What each of these people find in scripture is that God offers hope, freedom, and inclusion rather than condemnation, oppression, and exclusion.

    What is the Bible?

    What is the Bible?

    The Bible we use is the Bible we inherited from our parents, our parent's parents, and our parent's parent's parents. The Bible we use is NOT the collection of writings Jesus knew as sacred scripture or even the collection that all Christians everywhere agree are the one and only sacred scripture. So, then, what is the Bible?  United Methodists believe the Bible contains and/or reveals all things necessary for our salvation.  May the Bible offer you with what you need for salvation!
