The Sanctity of Life

water_15493ac“As with the other commandments, Jesus transforms this one by more than his condemnation of murderers. He provides the very Life that can rescue us from our murderous selves. He brings the life of the new creation in himself. . . . Those who would claim to be pro-life must be pro-Life: pro-Lord of Life.” (Edmund P. Clowney, How Jesus Transforms the Ten Commandments, p. 84).
