The Picture and the Presence
Many people struggle to figure out the connection between the Old Testament and the New Testament. This is especially true for those who have the impression that the God of the Old Testament is angry and distant, while Jesus is kind and tolerant. How do we make sense of this? Is there continuity? Is Jesus bringing about a correction of the teachings of the Old Testament? We get our best answer to these questions by looking at Jesus himself and at what he said.
