Jesus, the Law, and a “New” Covenant

A superb educational lecture by a top New Testament scholar. It mentions many things most Christians do not know about the real historical Jesus and the early church.

  1. Paul,

    Thanks for posting this. I was able to see some parts of it.

    It is interesting how he said that the perception by many Christians that the law given to Children was Israel was onerous is just plain wrong.

    And he gave a nice contrast on how national laws are much more detailed and in some ways more restricting than Torah laws.

    Also, it is remarkable that he said the Ebionates are probably the real first Christians even though they were later labeled as heretics by the Pauline Church.
