Paul Thiessen spoke on the lectionary texts Nehemiah 8, Psalm 19 and Luke 4 to illustrate how Jesus’ teaching both followed in the footsteps of earlier wisdom that relied heavily not so much on adherence to the letter of scripture, but also to the interpretation of scripture, and fulfilled the needs of mystery and wisdom in worship. Paul contrasted modern worship with his time in Ukraine where it felt more like performance than teaching, yet satisfied the need for closeness with God. [AP]
