Our Point Of View From Two Mountains

14th Sunday After Pentecost:
Date: August 30, 2015


Hebrews 12:18-24

For you have not come to the mountain that may
be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness
and tempest, 19 and the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words,
so that those who heard it begged that the word should not be
spoken to them anymore. 20 (For they could not endure what was
commanded: “And if so much as a beast touches the mountain, it
shall be stoned or shot with an arrow.” 21 And so terrifying was the
sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly afraid and trembling.”) 22
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God,
the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to
the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered
in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made
perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the
blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
