Holy Scripture Reading, 1 Corinthians 10: 32, St. Paul.

September 8, 2016

“Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks (Gentiles) or to the Church of God.” (1 Cor. 10: 32)
*This is surely a “dispensational schema”, i.e. form, and Pauline. Paul could simply never deny the historical Israel of God! (Romans 9: 1-5)

Note, I am generally a Progressive Dispensationalist and minimal Covenant theolog. Covenant is right on, but with also covenants, plural, (Eph. 2: 12). But the Covenant of Grace is singular, in both the Old and New Testament/Covenant, but it is first toward Israel, Romans 1: 16, and then toward the Gentiles or Nations. And the Gentiles and Nations have NOT superseded or substituted the Jews or National Israel, (Supersessionism/Replacement theology). The latter was the lie of Nazism!  JESUS/Yeshua was crucified as The King of the Jews!  And HE is always the Jewish Messiah, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!  Jesus was and is a Jew, true Christianity is always Judeo!

  1. And btw, the “one new man” in Ephesians is of course Jesus Christ, the Lord! And He nowhere overcomes the Jewishness as “the cornerstone”, but becomes Himself the literal Temple: “in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In HIM you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.” (Eph. 2: 19-22) i.e. Jew and Gentile!

    • This Creation will see the Jewishness of the Christ/Messiah and His people Israel, in the Millennial Kingdom on Earth! And the Church as both Jew and Gentile in this New Man will glory in HIM! See Revelation 21! But note verse 27, since the nations living on the new earth outside the New Jerusalem will bring their glory and honour into the city, they surely are included among those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life. But The Bride, the Wife of the Lamb lives above with Christ forever! Note again the contrast of verse 21: 8 and too verse 14, (see too chapter 22: 14-15, i.e. the contrast!)

      • In the end, and to eternity Jesus radiates as the King of Glory, THE Jewish Man/Messiah, and the Lord of Glory, to all the Gentiles and Nations, Revelation 21 and 22, but with the backdrop of all the Jewish Prophets, who prophesied of HIM! We simply must not forget ever of the Nation and people of Israel! (Romans 3) The NT makes no sense without the Old!
