Ss. Peter and Paul are beloved saints in the Orthodox Church. But they disagreed on how one should walk the Way and, so, they clashed at Antioch. But, in the end, their reconciliation shows us that to truly walk the Way, we need to especially love the neighbor we disagree with.
Does the Bible seem out-dated and irrelevant? Does it seem like the Bible is a relic of a bygone era? What does a text that’s thousands of years old have to say to us today? After all, we don’t live nomadic lives in a desert, we don’t travel to temples to make animal sacrifices, nor do we fear for our lives from Roman soldiers. And, on top of all that, the Bible is full of tales about God interacting with humans, performing miracles, destroying cities, and becoming a man. It all seems like the mythology of ages past. Well, believe it or not, the Bible knows us better than we know ourselves. Its critique of human power and civilizations still has the power to expose our own arrogance. By calling us to obedience to the scriptural God, scripture transforms us and we are freed from our slavery to the Pharaoh's of our day so that we can walk The Way.
