Series: Next Question
Does the Bible speak of one and the same God or is it a disparate collection of several conceptions of divinity? Some readers in fact contrast the God of the Old Testament, warlike and intransigent, with a God of the New Testament, full of love and grace.
For Émile Nicole, these images are the result of a superficial reading. He invites us to follow, through the book of Exodus, some major themes of this book and of the Old Testament. The statement in the prologue to the Gospel of John "The law was given by Moses, grace and truth came by Jesus Christ" serves as a guide to this exploration of God's project in its coherence: God liberates, God gives his law, God forgives and assures his presence.
In just a few pages, with brilliance and passion, the author weaves for us the common thread connecting the Old and New Testaments.
