Why does God seem different in the Old Testament?

Check out Father Scolaro's explanation of the nature of Old Testament stories from our latest Stump the Priest event!

The hope of Stump the Priest was to create an environment where people
are comfortable asking any question, simple or complex, and where all can feel free to bring forward any misgivings which may be holding them back from a deeper relationship with Christ.

Dr William Lane Craig answers a question in this clip about the morality of God in the Old Testament and the New Testament. Are they the actions of the same God? How can you reconcile the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament? On March 21, 2013, Dr Craig spoke at Texas A&M in College Station, Texas on the topic of faith, science and philosophy. This event was put on by the Veritas Forum which hosts university events that engage students and faculty in discussions about life's hardest questions and the relevance of Jesus Christ to all of life. The style of this talk was more like a conversation than a lecture as Dr Craig shares much of his own personal story about how he came to faith in Jesus Christ.
