…Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes?

God tells us here that the scripture in Deuteronomy concerning the ox was not about the ox at all, it was written “altogether for our sakes”. Using this as a springboard, Pastor Stephen explores several other Old Testament scriptures related to Oxen to discover and illustrate Biblical life principles for us today. Welcome to Oxynutics 101.
