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 […]

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.
