WHO WERE THE RECIPIENTS OF FIRST PETER? … “you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own” 1 Peter 2:9 | Supersessionism, Replacement Theology

  https://swbts.edu/sites/default/files/images/content/docs/journal/59_1/SWJT%2059.1_Sibley.pdf “So as you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but chosen and priceless in God’s sight, you yourselves, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood and to offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it says in […]

Is Every Promise Fulfilled in Christ? A Reply to Thomas Schreiner’s Supersessionism

[W]hat about the promise of land? This is a very controversial subject, but I would argue that the promise of land is fundamentally fulfilled, first, in the resurrection of Jesus himself. Every promise is fulfilled in Jesus; so the resurrection, the physical resurrection of Jesus, it’s the inauguration of that promise made, originally, to Adam […]

Are Pretribs Consistent in Interpreting the Book of Revelation with the Grammatical-Historical Hermeneutic?

The other day I linked to Clint Archer’s insightful critique of Kevin DeYoung’s supersessionist (aka replacement theology) interpretation of the 144,000 passage in Revelation 7. I left a comment for him at his blog post (which he oddly shut down all comments for the post soon after I posted it). I highlighted the inconsistency of […]

A Reply to Kevin DeYoung’s Supersessionist Interpretation of the 144,000 Symbolizing ‘ALL Christians’

I’d like to humbly offer five reasons the 144,000 witnesses comprised of 12,000 celibate men from each of the twelve tribes of ethnic Israel are actually 144,000 witnesses comprised of 12,000 celibate men from the twelve tribes of ethnic Israel… 1. What John wrote makes perfect sense as it stands written, and there is no […]

The LORD has made a promise to Israel

“The LORD has made a promise to Israel. He promises it as the one who fixed the sun to give light by day and the moon and stars to give light by night. He promises it as the one who stirs up the sea so that its waves roll. He promises it as the one […]

Romans 4:13, Israel’s Land, and a Reply to Supersessionism (aka Replacement Theology)

“For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith.” (Romans 4:13) by Michael J. Vlach Romans 4:13 has become a hotly debated verse lately between those who believe in a literal future fulfillment of Israel’s land […]

First Peter 2:9–10 Refers to JEWISH Believers, Not the Church as the ‘New Israel’ – Ep. 81

They teach that because 1 Peter 2:9-10 contains Old Testament references that were originally applied to Israel they should now be re-interpreted to be replaced by the Church being the “New Israel.” And consequently, they […]

Paul Martin Henebury on Whether the Term ‘Replacement Theology’ Is Accurate

Recently I have been reminded of the Reformed community’s aversion to the label of supercessionism, or worse, replacement theology.  In the last decade or so particularly I have read repeated disavowals of this term from covenant theologians.  Not wanting to misrepresent or smear brethren with whom I disagree, I have to say that I struggle […]

A Reply to Billy Crone’s Defamation Against Christians Who Love Jews and Affirm a Future Israel

“For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God.” (2 Cor 2:17) Notice the last statement in the verse above: “we speak in Christ in the sight of God.” Evidently, this statement does not register with […]
