Here is the full text of my study of Supercessionism or Replacement Theology in pdf format: Replacement Theology REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY Is it right to Use the Term? Recently I have been reminded of the Reformed CT community’s aversion to the label of supercessionism, or worse, replacement theology. In the last decade or so particularly I haveContinue Reading
This entry is part 23 of 28 in the series Biblical CovenantalismThese lectures address the widespread notion that the Bible intends the OT to be interpreted by the NT. But this raises all sorts of problems, since, e.g., the NT appeals to the OT for its authority. DoestheNThavepriorityovertheOld1 DoestheNThavepriorityoverthe-Old2Continue Reading

“The whole idea of progression in this sense must incorporate constancy of meaning. Like coming across leopard tracks in the snow; following them would lead you to a leopard. It would not lead you to a bear. Bears have different signatures. Just so, when God reveals He leaves a verbal signature which can be tracked. It cannot eventuate in a result which the revelation has rendered us totally unprepared for.”
This entry is part 19 of 28 in the series Biblical CovenantalismJesus’ Teaching on the Kingdom: Matthew Now the attention is on Matthew’s witness. Matthew’s Gospel is perhaps the “Jewish” of the Gospels. These lectures have been taken from the course ‘Biblical Theology of the New Testament’ at Telos Biblical Institute 7.KingdomTeachings4 Jesus’ Teaching onContinue Reading
This lecture highlights the subtle but crucial differences between a covenant and a promise, and how this can affect the way we read the Bible. Also coming under scrutiny is the popular “promise – fulfillment” scheme.
From what I have written in support of this definition several things come out:
1. Revelation is, for the most part, unambiguous clear communication or it is not good communication
2. The progressive revealing must be amenable to tracking so as to ensure it is cohesive and non-contradictory.
3. The idea of progressive revelation, then, also carries the notion of expectancy, based on the content of what God revealed.”
“This brings us to a fourth observation: the “progression” was merely that of historical pronouncements couched in types and shadows, not in plain language. All that is meant by “progressive” is “communication at different times.” Meanwhile, all “revelation” turns out to be is “obtuse disclosure” which would remain unclear and misleading until the “fulfillment” was announced!”
As previously noted here, I was asked to represent Traditional Dispensationalism for a set of interviews conducted by Lindsay Kennedy. Two far more noteworthy contributors; Darrell Bock (Progressive Dispensationalism), and James Hamilton (Historic Premillennialism), were also interviewed. After the interviews were completed, each man was given the opportunity to ask one of the others aContinue Reading
“Our doctrine of revelation is the bedrock of what ever else we as Christians might want to say. Revelation entails clarity of intention. In speaking about “progressive revelation” we are always talking about the character and consistency of the Revelator.”
