Professor David Lewis from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, studies 2 Corinthians 5:15 on today’s episode: “[A]nd he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” Professor Lewis shows us from the Scripture that Jesus died for all, and that the Gospel is for all people, even if the benefit of Christ death and resurrection can only be received through faith. Now that we are in this faith and life we learn what it looks like to live “not for ourselves, but got him who for [our] sake died and was raised.”
“The New Covenant” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron featuring a step-by-step walk through 2 Corinthians 3-7:1, focusing on what it means to be Christians of the New Testament age, waiting for the glory of the world to come.
