Dorothy Lee joins us as we talk about the liberating force of the Ten Commandments as a grace-filled way to live out salvation. We touch on Paul’s counter-cultural theology of the cross in Corinthians: God goes with shame and undercuts our notions of strength and power. Dorothy outlines how worship and market places operated in the temple, highlighting a key way John 2 has been misinterpreted. The writer of John is concerned with who Jesus is as the temple of God, and the manifestation of his glory in his resurrection. we talk about what it might mean for the church to be cleansed.

We refer to El Greco’s painting The Cleansing of the Temple.
