Following Jesus into the World
1st-century Judaism was concerned with maintaining personal holiness, but this undermined the heart of Old Testament law: mercy. Biblical holiness is being merciful to sinful people. Jesus calls us into the world just as he was in the world. This talk is for anyone who wants to follow Jesus into our world.
