Scott Teaches About Pentecost

On the evening before the Christian Pentecost Sunday, Dr. Lively relates one of his most interesting discoveries in the text of the Bible, related to the contrast of the letter and the spirit of the law in the stories of the Hebrew and Christian Pentecost experiences. The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 3:6 that “God has qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” That teaching is astonishingly illustrated by the comparison of Exodus 32 (especially verse 28) with Acts 2 (especially verse 40). Dr. Lively also shows how God’s instructions on the keeping of the Pentecost holiday in Leviticus 23 bolster “two house” theology.
