We are all inhabitants of our world and our culture. We are all—myself included—taking a huge number of things for granted without ever giving them a second thought, rarely realising that the world could perhaps be quite different from the way it is.
What would the world look like if money worked entirely differently? What would a modern society look like without nation states? What would need to change to abolish poverty or provide truly equal opportunity? We simply don’t know.
As a rule I’m deeply committed to expository preaching, but from time to time I like to keep things fresh by throwing in something that appeals more to the imagination, like this monologue on the account in Luke 2:41-52 of the young Jesus in the temple.
Good morning and greetings to you all. My name is Eliphaz bar-Joseph. I am a lifelong student of the law of God the Almighty. The law! Oh, the law. The law of Moses is my joy and my delight.
