Patterns of Holiness

Another excellent interview with Fr. Karl Fabrizius on the patterns of holiness in the Old Testament and how they inform the new - after all, we are not functional Marcionites, are we?

You need to listen to get the whole thing, but a few interesting insights:
 -  Ananias and Sapphira as a parallel to Nadab and Abihu
 - Oholah and Oholibah bringing the world in the sanctuary
 - Miriam wanting the office and God striking her with leprosy as a parallel to Simon the Sorcerer and his simony

Fr. Fabrizius also took a nice shot at 'the fruit of the vine' argument.

And the conclusion which earns a hearty Amen in these parts:
...Methodist hymns lead to everything else...
