Is Jesus Currently on David’s Throne?

Michael J. Vlach writes: The purpose of this blog post is to examine Peter’s use of Psalm 132:11 in Acts 2:30 with a view toward grasping Peter’s understanding of the throne of David concept. Acts 2 describes the baptizing and filling ministry of the Holy Spirit after Jesus’ ascension. This is all related to Jesus, […]

Paul’s Use of Isaiah 59:20-21 in Romans 11:26-27

by Michael Vlach One example where a New Testament writer views an Old Testament prophetic passage as needing to be fulfilled literally in the future is Paul’s use of Isaiah 59:20-21 in Romans 11:26-27: and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, “The Deliverer will come from Zion, He will remove […]

Did Paul Redefine ‘Israel’ in Romans 2:28–29?

i) One problem is the “Jewish question”. Is God faithful to the promises he made to the patriarchs (e.g. Rom 3:4; 11:2)? If the recipient of a promise can be “redefined”, after the fact, then in what respect has God made good on his promises? If God can swap out the original referent and swap […]

A Critique of Stephen Sizer’s: Zion’s Christian Soldiers?: The Bible, Israel and the Church

This is a critique by Ted Loy of Stephen Sizer’s supersessionist theology. The following is an outline of his article. The link below is to his entire article. Worth the time to read it.

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 […]
