We may assume we’re close to God. Or we may think we’re far away. But what would we do if God moved in next door to us? Who could go and knock on his door? Leviticus, a book foreign even to many Bible readers, shows what was required to draw near to God. And we see the hints of who may bring us near today. Sermon from the 6th of March, 2016 by Steve Swan.
Theology is a “Victorian” enterprise, neo-classically bright and neat and clean, nothing out of place. Whereas the Bible talks about hair, blood, sweat, entrails, menstruation and genital emissions.
Peter Leithart, Against Christianity
We shall not benefit from reading the Old Testament unless we look for and meditate on the glory of Christ in its pages.
John Owen (1616-1683)
In the Old Testament the New Testament is concealed; in the New Testament the Old Testament is revealed.
Augustine of Hippo (354 – 430 AD)
And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
The Apostle Paul (Ephesians 5:2)
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God…
The Apostle Peter (1st Peter 3:18)
