Did Jesus Do Away with the Law?

Episode 358 Show Notes 

From the Show

Jesus wasn’t saying that the first half of the movie was all wrong (the old covenant in, other words); he’s saying that it was all along setting things up for the climax in the second half. Jesus is the prophet, priest, and king of Israel. He’s the mighty warrior who trampled Satan and his minions underfoot. He’s the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

—Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. What did Jesus mean in the sermon on the mount when he made statements, “you have heard it said, but I say to you...” Is Jesus doing away with the law?

2. As believers in this day in age when you die, do you go directly to heaven; or do you sleep until the day of the Lord? I have seen Scripture that can go both ways. The Bible says that you know nothing in the grave. It says that David is still in the grave sleeping.

3. What do people mean when they say that the Bible is the word of God?

4. How do we respond when people point to the Bible as a means to spread misogyny?
