As we lead up to our second Lead U Conference (For the Life of the Church: Christianity and Cultural Engagement, April 27-28), we are sharing links to the presentations from our first conference last fall, Christianity and the Death of the Old Testament. Below is a brief summary of this week’s featured presentation with a link to the video. We hope you will join us on April 27-28 for our second conference!
Breakout Session 1B: “Sinai and the Saints: Reading and Teaching Old Testament Legal Material” by Jay Todd
Summary: In this breakout session, Dr. Jay Todd discusses the way in which Christians should read and apply the Old Testament legal material. As a key point in this discussion, he addresses the relationship between the Old and New Covenants and how Christians, though not under the Old Covenant laws, still understand the Old Covenant laws as they are recorded in various places in the Old Testament as a part of Christian Scripture. Dr. Todd has written more extensively on this topic in his book Sinai and the Saints: Reading Old Covenant Laws for the New Covenant Community.
