New Pots and Pans, Woo Hoo!!
I am going to tackle an important subject this month. How Jesus and Jehovah are related. How does God in the Old Covenant become Christ in the New, with a message of loving our enemies instead of anihilating them.
Thanks to Scot McKnight for recommending a good book, God Behaving Badly, to help in my thinking.
There is a real sense in which we have evolved from Old to New, and are more sensitive to acts of genocide like we read in the conquest of Canaan, and this is good and right. The problem is learning to defend the scriptures while remaining sensitive to the changes that come with the civilizing of our cultures.
