An Obedient Israel

Sharing Options

“If the history of the Old Testament can be summed up as ‘Israel screws up,’ then the story of Christ is summed up as ‘Israel does it right.’ . . . The reason I can be an Israelite and not be destroyed is Israel is now obedient. And whose obedience was this? How did it happen? The active obedience of Christ began with His miraculous brith, and His exile in Egypt, and His restoration from Egypt. Out of Egypt God called His Son. And when God called His Son, we came too.”

The Auburn Avenue Chronicles, pp. 190-191
