Does God Endorse Murder? An Example of "Sanctifying Interpretation"

57m | Nov 21, 2023

In response to our conversation with Chris Green, we've received a couple questions asking for examples of how this "new/old" way of interpreting the Scriptures works. So we used a recent sermon from Matt on 2 Samuel 21:1-14 (David avenging the Gibeonites) as an example and talked about the implications.

Here's a link to Matt's original sermon, if you'd like to listen:
