This week the main topics were:
- A revisiting of the Sanctification Gap (Lovelace) by Steve Porter, Ph.D.
- A discussion of Jesus' Sabbath healings and their function in dismantling the Maccabbean ideology (Hellerman).
I think the truth of the kingdom, the truth of being like the Son, is possibly more than we are able to bear. And if our finite, earth-filtered minds cannot grasp it, what are we to do? Howa re we to embody the kingdom and be like Jesus? Could it be that “natural means” are handles or skyhooks, if you will, helping us grasp what is, for now, beyond our reach? Might the human activities of dining, studying, painting, playing football, exegeting Scripture, and a host of other things—might they be guideposts, bringing us from the reality of messy life on earth to the ideal of holy life with God?
