Message: Old and New Things

This week's takeaway from church

For the Jewish people who had a long history with God, they could look back on centuries of tradition. Jesus did not throw that out as he was first and foremost a Jew. Every Saturday he would be at Synagogue and like any other young Jewish boy he would have been taught the Torah (Law).
He honoured the old things. Yet he brought something new. With an emphasis on grace and faith more than works he reinterpreted Judaism. Often he taught not to hold onto old things too tightly at the expense of discovering God anew.

Wise teaching we all need to hear.
