Johann David Funk spoke on “Thy Kingdom come” based on the lectionary texts. Jeremiah and King David anticipated the New Covenant in contrast to the stern images of God elsewhere in the Old Testament. Jesus created space for reflection and positive change in the stories of the woman caught in adultery, the persistent Widow (God) and the unjust judge (you & I), and the Centurion of great faith — even enemies are not beyond redemption. Is the New Covenant like a new Operating System that sweeps away our accumulation of patches and updates to the Law? How can we reflect the “Kingdom that looks like Jesus” (Gregory A. Boyd) while we are in the world but not of this world? [KH]
