The Old Way (Matt. 5:27-30)

About this Episode

Just a few paragraphs into the Sermon on the Mount, and already Jesus is getting offensive. Anger is one thing, but now he dares to talk about lust? And divorce? Doesn’t Jesus know that these are private issues? Yes, he does—which is why he talks about them, and why we’ll spend a few extra weeks in these verses. We examine the assumptions about sex and sexuality that Jesus’s listeners bring to the conversation, and contrast them with our assumptions today. We examine “The Old Way” from Matthew 5:27-30 to get our bearings from the Bible’s teaching on this topic!
