Proper 30 – Year A (2017)

Deuteronomy 34:1-12; Psalm 90:1-6,13-17; I Thessalonians 2:1-8; Matthew 22:34-46

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

In the debates between Jesus and those gathered in the temple courts we encounter topics in Theology, Ethics and the Law and the identity of the Messiah. Concerning law, his response is simple and all encompassing: love God and love your neighbour. The 10 commandments give a starting place for describing what that looks like in daily life. The reformers declared that our relationship with God is shaped by Grace alone; embracing a life ob obedience to the Law shapes our response.
