Sermon Notes

August 14, 2022: The Israelites had come to a place where they were keenly aware of their sin and God’s grace in allowing them to return to their land and build the temple and the wall. Because of this, they decided to make a covenant to obey the particulars of the law and not to neglect the Temple. In their zeal to not offend God, they committed to honoring God in their relationships, their commerce, and their giving to the work of the Temple. Over the next 400 years, this would become a complicated legalistic system concerned only with outward appearance of religion. That is the system that was in place when Jesus was born.
