What I’m Thinking: Guide for Human Living

The Ten Commandments aren’t precisely law. They are the foundation of law, but more to the point, they are a guide for human living. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the twentieth chapter of Exodus (Exodus 20:1-20). It is the first of the two places in the Old Testament where we’ll find the Ten Commandments. […]

What I’m Thinking: Going First

Why didn’t Jesus seem to think that the “nice people” would go first? Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the twenty-first chapter of Matthew’s Gospel (Matthew 21:23-32).
