The Controversy Over the Biblical COVENANTS

The Controversy Over the Biblical COVENANTS

Ratings: (0)|Views: 75 |Likes:
The controversy over the covenants is not a phenomenon of our times. It can be traced back to the early church. It stems largely from the theology of contempt for the Jews that was fabricated by such second century Christian writers like Barnabas and Justin Martyr in order to sanction the Roman persecution of the Jews as a fulfillment of their divine rejection...

The inspiration for this study comes from our current Sabbath SchoolQuarterly (January, February, March 2003), which is devoted to thestudy of GOD'S EVERLASTING COVENANT. The authors of thequarterly avoid discussing the controversy over the Old and New Covenants that has been rekindled recently by former Sabbatarians whohave rejected the Sabbath.
