Higher: "Long Hike: Wear Good Shoes"
It will take 6 whole minutes to read the Six Antitheses in Matthew 5:17-48, where Jesus says, six times, "You have heard it said...But I say unto you...". It will take a lifetime to live into those words. With thanks to the Bible & Beer group for helping me work through this, especially that stuff about the "right hand..." And with thanks to Steven Eason's essay in Feasting on the Gospels: Matthew, vol. 1 for helping me think about the kind of church we would be, all together now, if we took these words seriously.
