    Hermeneutics: The Basis for Appeals to the OT

    Recently I have been learning about covenant theology and have come to see that the gospel realities in the NT are present also in the OT. This definitely changes how I read the OT. It makes sense of appeals in the NT to the OT like in 1 Corinthians 10:1-10. However, as I've been reading other...

    Did Noah live long enough to know Abraham?

    Here a question that may generate some debate and one that may reflect our views of genealogies as it compares to the 6000 year age date of the Earth. It is not a question we should divide over, call each other liberals/fundamentalists, or worse heretics. Now for the question: Did Noah live...
