Barth Bite for Sunday December 6, 2015

“The problem of distinguishing the command of God from other commands narrows down accordingly to that of distinguishing Jesus Christ from all other lords and ultimately and decisively from the lord that each of us would like to be over himself.” – Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics, Volume II.2, page 608

Barth Bite for Tuesday December 1, 2015

“Jesus Christ Himself as the Gospel, revealed, proclaimed, offered to man and affecting him, is always clothed in the Law, hidden in the manger and swaddling clothes of the commandments, His divine commanding. We cannot believe or have Him except in this form. It is in this form, and only in this form, that He is powerful and true.” – Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics, Volume II.2, page 653
