Reconciling the Old Testament and New Testament

Struggling with how the depiction of God in the Old Testament jives with Jesus in the New Testament?

Greg Boyd, pastor of Woodland Hills Church, has some awesome sermons on this topic.

In the first sermon, God’s Shadow Activity, he shows how the Law was simply a shadowy depiction of God’s ultimate aim–the cross.

In the second sermon, Shadow of the Cross, he talks about how the barbaric, violent, nationalistic passages in the Old Testament are examples of God taking accountability for our sinful actions, just as he ultimately did through Jesus on the cross.

Give ’em a listen. Good stuff.
