More on discontinuity and continuity
Thanks for your thoughts.
A good book on the relationship of the Old and New Testaments is Continuity and Discontinuity, edited by John Feinberg. It has articles by those who are from the Continiuty camp [Covenant theology] and those who are from the Discontinuity camp [Dispensationalists] and those who like to have a bit both ways, but are more in the Discontinuity camp [New Covenant Theology folk].
One thing the book reveals is that all camps share some common ground and that all believe in elements of continuity and discontinuity.
I still haven't finished the whole book, but enjoy it every time I read bits of it!
I'm more or less NCT and feel that CT overemphasises the continuity at the expense of the obvious discontinuity between the testaments.
"Old Teatament & New Testament"?
David, Have you ever sat back and wondered why we call it the "Old Teatament & New Testament"?
I think I'll do some research on this.
I'll let you know what I find out.
Have a great week my friend!! :)
