The Commandments

October 2
I have only used the text from Exodus for this sermon. Whenever I approach OT texts I am indebted to the work of Walter Brueggemann for his astute analysis of the place of “empire” in the OT literature and how that concept plays out in the present time. While I don’t use it directly the image of “God’s Own” (NZ) in the place of Israel and the US as “Empire” is one I keep working on in the background of my preaching.
