Every commandment should be viewed through the commandment to love.


In this episode, Pastor Adam Ericksen answers the complex question, “Does the New Testament nullify the Old?” The question pits the New Testament against the Old Testament. Adam quotes Matthew Chapter 5 where Jesus says he has not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it. When Jesus is asked what is the most important commandment, a common question in Judaism, Jesus cites the commandments to love God and your neighbor. These commandments form the heart of Leviticus.
