Preparing for Sunday (9/21/19): Passage & Songs
Looking forward to week 2 of our series on the Sermon on the Mount: The Way of the King. We will look at God’s Law and what Jesus meant when he said he did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it.
“This leads me to say that Matthew 5:17–20 is one of the most pristine expressions of the gospel in the New Testament. Why? Because this passage says overtly and boldly that the Story of Israel is fulfilled in Jesus himself. His life, his teachings, his actions—everything about him completes what was anticipated in the Old Testament. That’s the gospel! — Scott McKnight
