God's law can be an intimidating topic. Why are there over 600 laws? What do we do with them? We’re re-releasing our five most popular podcasts, and the episode with the most listens is also the first one we ever recorded. Listen in as Tim and Jon unpack what the laws meant for ancient Israel and what they mean for us today.
The laws play a role in the storyline of the Torah, which is that God wants to bring his blessing to all the nations. He’s going to do that through a people, somehow, who will live by these laws in their own context (Israel) and embody a new vision of justice and community and family and marriage that sets them apart from the nations. … The laws show God’s wisdom and God’s righteousness to the nations.
Show produced by Cooper Peltz, Dan Gummel, and Zach McKinley. Remastering by Jake Trethaway. Show notes by Lindsey Ponder.
