Some Continuities and Discontinuities between the Older Testament and the Newer Testament. This 34-page booklet stresses the unity of Scripture and the importance of using the entire Bible. It answers the following questions. How were people saved in the Old Testament? What is the relationship between the Old Testament covenants and the new covenant? Were Old Testament ethics inferior to the ethics of the New Testament? What continues from the Old Testament and what does not continue and why? The hermeneutical question of continuity/discontinuity affects Christian practice in many areas, e.g., church-state relations, civil laws (e.g., capital punishment, abortion), dietary laws, regulations for worship, church polity, keeping the Sabbath, etc. A bibliography is included.
