Adultery, Jesus and the Church

posted by Scot McKnight

Nightline is doing a series on the Ten Commandments. The first show, which was last Thursday, was about adultery, the Seventh Commandment.  We think Jesus shifted the focus of the 7th Commandment to the violation of love and made fidelity […]
