Jubilee Sermon Series: Shekel, Shalom, Shabot
About Jubilee Sermon Series: Shekel, Shalom, Shabot:
In the Old Testament, God presented His people with the Jubilee. It was a set of practices designed to correct the effects of the fall by allowing the Israelites to recover from financial loss, relational breakdown, and exhaustion. Tragically, because of their waywardness, the Jubilee of God remained largely just a concept in the Old Testament. But, Jubilee is still a vital element of God’s story because in the coming of Christ, it was finally put into effect. In fact, the whole New Testament is chock full of examples of the ways in which Christ’s death, resurrection and ascension reverse the effects of the fall, especially in the ways we deal with our money, our relationships and our rest. The Jubilee of God allows us to work toward the way things should be rather than being resigned to the way things are.
