The Rich Young Man

August 22, 2018 Length: 8:46

This text is familiar because we hear it each year and it is so striking. In it the young man rehearses the list of commandments that any convert might have followed (hence the text has an eye to the Gentile world), but more than this it shows how Jesus drives deeply to the heart of the separation between humanity and God, found in the distractions that make us focus on penultimate things. Listen in.
