Yesterday, on Frank Viola’s
blog (www.frankviola.wordpress.com), he interviews Paul Copen, who wrote the book Is God a Moral Monster? Making Sense of the Old Testament God. Particularly, part way through this blog/interview, which is significantly longer than the normal blog, Copen gives an understandable explanation of one of the most difficult passages of scripture to understand, Deuteronomy 25:11-12. Most commentaries one can find on the internet on this are by unbelievers wishing to mock faith in the God of the Judeo-Christian scriptures. Further, it is amazing how many commentaries on the Old Testament by believing scholars skip explaining this piece of the Law. I have heard this explanation once before, but without explaining the specific Hebrew words, the explanation doesn’t make sense. Reimagining Church
At this point in my life, Frank’s blog is the only one I subscribe to.
