The Old Testament: Not What, But Who!
Perhaps one of the most confusing parts of the Bible is understanding the relationship between the New Testament and the Old Testament. And, in turn, understanding our relationship as “New Testament people” to the Old Testament.
Typically, we see ourselves as no longer being bound by the laws found within the Old Testament.
But, in this upcoming Gospel reading, Jesus says that the law will not pass away ... not one letter, not one stroke?
How are we to understand this? What did Jesus mean?
The Bottom Line: to appreciate how the Law will not pass away, we have to understand not *what* the Old Testament is about, but rather *whom* it’s about.
