    Acts 15 is a story of the leaders of the early church reading the Bible like Jesus. It’s a good example to follow. That’s why it’s there.

    In Mark 7.1-23, Jesus did something stunning: He boldly declared that people had misunderstood an entire chapter of the Bible (Leviticus 11). Now if there’s anywhere you can make the “Bible clearly says” arguments, it would have been the dietary laws of the Hebrew Bible. Jesus offers a radically revisionist interpretation of them. Why can’t we read the Bible like Jesus?

    That Jesus’ teachings—especially as we find them epitomized in the Sermon on the Mount—stand in radical continuity with the Mosaic law (Matt. 5.17-20) should come as no surprise to us. This is especially true when we pause to consider the deliberate parallels drawn by Matthew between Moses and Jesus, particularly in the events leading up to the Sermon on the Mount.
