The Surprise Ending

The Surprise Ending January 5, 2015

“There’s a load of debate out there about law and grace: Should we adopt some of the law? Don’t we need a balance of law and grace? And the truth is that 99 percent of the people debating the issue are Gentiles. For us, it’s the new covenant or nothing at all. So let’s enjoy everything from Genesis to Revelation, knowing it’s all inspired. But let’s also recognize that there’s a surprise ending to the story—the cross and the resurrection! This surprise ending inspires us to go back and reinterpret the beginning of the story in light of all that has now been revealed. So let’s look at the old covenant, which is now obsolete, through the lens of the new covenant. There’s simply no other way to fully relax with God.”
