O1i Understanding the Sabbath

A look at the sabbath, it’s meanings in the Old Testament, corrections in understanding by Jesus, and its relevance for families today and contemporary worship.  Does it apply to Israel only?  Is it of universal scope in application for all of humanity?  Saturday?  Sunday? Is the sabbath mainly for devotion to God or is it intended for us too?

02B The Worship Leader’s Magna Carta: Colossians 3:16 TNW PP

Is this the most important chapter in my book, The New Worship?  Newer translations and recent scholarly papers are adopting the viewpoint expressed here, that Col 3:16 contains instrumental clauses. Psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit are “a means” by which the word (message) of Christ dwells richly among us. Our songs should teach & admonish, says Paul. Also be sure to consider the implications of Colossians 1:28. Many issues to consider here!
