New Covenant Terms Applicable to the Ancients

Before the New Covenant had been ratified by the death of Jesus, its terms were made applicable to those who had faith.

Blinded crying blue murder having being made afraid by a bugaboo

Missional hermeneutics 4/5

Recognising Message For us who study the Bible as believers, it is also important that we recognise the message Jesus delivered from God to his kinsmen, the Jews. But Jesus did not came only for them. He came to proclaim the Word of God for the whole world. He brought a call to repentance from […]

Missional hermeneutics 3/5

Authority of Scripture and witness to itself We all should allow the Scriptures to stand as their own witness and interpreter. In the Westminster Confession of Faith (1646) it is  summarized in (1:9): “The infallible rule of interpretation of Scripture is the Scripture itself; and therefore, when there is a question about the true and […]
