Old Testament Interpretation
On Wednesday Night, January 5th, at 6:30pm, we will study Old Testament Interpretation. Does the Old Testament apply to New Testament Christians? There are a variety of opinions among Christians on this topic.
-Some quote Romans 8:2 that in Christ we have been freed from the law; therefore, we should "unhitch" ourselves from the Old Testament.
-Other Christians believe in "Replacement Theology"; that is, the New Testament Church has replaced Israel in the plan and promises of God. Since the Church has replaced Israel, we are free to "name and claim" all those promises from the Old Testament.
-Still other groups think that Christians should keep all the Old Testament laws PLUS believe on the Lord Jesus Christ in order to be saved.
This will be our Wednesday Night Question of the Week. Does the Old Testament apply to New Testament Christians?
