Reclaiming the Faith

Revealing what the earliest Christians believed about the core issues facing us today.

Hyperbolic Jesus

January 30th, 2018

In Episode 13 I’m diving back into my book, New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ. This is an audio version of Chapter 4, which is called Hyperbolic Jesus. In the previous chapter, I began to discuss how the earliest Christians took Jesus’ words very simply and seriously, even when it came to loving their enemies. Now in chapter 4, I continue to examine that approach to reading the Bible, specifically as it pertains to Jesus’ command to cut off our hands and pluck out our eyes if they cause us to sin.
