A Brief Overview of Covenant Theology in Earliest Christianity

By: Ligon Duncan

Religious Publication

Excerpt: The covenant idea was more significant in the writings of particular early ante-Nicene theologians than has generally been admitted in patristic research or general surveys of the history of the covenant idea in the Christian tradition. Indeed, even a brief survey of the covenant vocabulary in the theological writings of the early ante-Nicene period demonstrates a significant usage, development, and modification of the covenant concept as it is found in the OT a...

A Case for Infant Baptism

By: Rev. Scott J. Simmons

Religious Publication

Introduction: This essay is intended to set forth a biblical and coherent case for infant baptism, beginning with an understanding of roots in the Old Testament practice of circumcision and its parallels with a theology of baptism. This issue is not an issue for which proof-texts can be cited and then the issue decided. In many ways, the debate rests on (1) the matter of burden of proof and (2) which underlying theology best explains all Biblical passages. It will be arg...

The Acts of the Apostles

By: Ellen G. White

Religious Publication

Preface: The fifth book of the New Testament has been known from ancient times as The Acts of the Apostles; but this title cannot be found in the book itself. One of the earliest manuscripts, the Codex Sinaiticus, gives as the title the simple word Acts, with no mention of the apostles. There is a reason for this. Acts was intended to be more than a brief history of the service rendered by the twelve disciples, much more than the principal events in the lifework of its f...

A Defense of (Reformed) Amillennialism

By: David J. Engelsma
