What did Jesus mean when He said, “Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice?'” (Matthew 9:13).
I find John Piper’s article about Jesus’ idea of mercy insightful. John Piper is founder and teacher of desiringGod.org and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. For 33 years, he served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is author of more than 50 books, including Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist and most recently Why I Love the Apostle Paul: 30 Reasons.
