ON Scripture

ON Scripture is a new online preaching-helps column.

Some ELCAers [1] and Odyssey Networks, an interfaith media organization, are behind it.

Each weekly column comments on the Bible texts for the coming Sunday in light of current political and social issues.

According to The Lutheran, [2]“Odyssey hopes to also include Jewish and Muslim scriptures.”

Jewish and Muslim scriptures?

Jews and Christians do not understand the Hebrew scriptures the same way at all.

Muslim scriptures vigorously reject Jesus as Lord.
