We cannot accept the Jesus of the New Testament without accepting the God of the Old Testament.
We beat the God of the Old Testament over the head with the morality of the New Testament.
The fact that five women are included in the genealogy of Jesus should catch our attention!
God is not cold or uncaring or unaware of our pain and suffering. Yet, He has a plan, and He intends to carry it out.
Our perspective of God changes dramatically in the New Testament because God came to us in different form.
