The Fulfilment of the Covenants: an Acovenantal Perspective on Paul

This was my thesis for my Moore College B.D.

The Fulfilment of the Covenants: an Acovenantal Perspective on Paul.

Summary: The New Perspective on Paul and the ancient Qumran sectarians have this in common: they use the term ‘covenant’ as a sociological catch-all term to describe the relationship between God and a specific community. But this essay argues that, according to the Bible (especially Paul), Christians are not in a ‘covenant’ with God at all. Rather, the old and new covenants were instruments that God used historically to bring about our relationship with him. This relationship is a spiritual union with Christ by faith, not a ‘covenant’ in the biblical sense.
