(Moltmann on) Bonhoeffer on the Old Testament

John Hobbins (one of my personal favorite bloggers to read) just posted an article that I found wonderful entitled: Moltmann on Bonhoeffer’s Approach to the Old Testament (and he has helpfully translated the German for those of us not able currently able to read such).  It does indeed seem that many want to attain to the knowledge of God without the struggle to attain such.  We must study the OT intently (but more importantly be studied by it) and finally come to grips with the One who is Holy and demands that His people be as He is, before thinking that we can just be Jesus’ “friend”.  We need the other-ness of God to really appreciate the this-ness of God.  We need the fear of God to really appreciate the mercy, grace and love of God.
