Context is Everything: Introduction

“Judge not lest ye be judged.” One of the most misquoted verses in the Bible. Does judging mean that we can’t express our preferences, have courtrooms and laws, or gently confront a brother or sister who is struggling? No. Jesus’ warning is against our tendency to condemn people, to make hasty assumptions, and to not look at our own sin first. Today we learned how to interpret this passage as it was originally intended and in a larger context addressing the sin of hypocrisy.
