Welcome to episode 8 of the Ekklesia Podcast. As I take my place behind the podcast microphone for the first time in about 2 months, let’s talk about some foundational truths that we’ll be drawing on in future episodes. Let’s talk about some of the major differences between the Old and New Covenants and how the church tends to confuse the two and get things mixed up. I mentioned in a previous episode that we don’t really know what to do with Moses. We like to keep enough of Moses around to use the Law for guilting people into supporting our institutions. We like to flirt with Moses by letting just enough of what he has to say creep into our New Covenant settings without getting too carried away. We like to use Moses to guilt people into jumping through more hoops than they already are, or to keep them jumping through the same ones they’re already jumping through.
But does the Law of Moses and the Old Covenant have any place in the ekklesia or in the New Covenant? Let’s talk about it!
