We have added Richard Baucham’s important work on themes in the book of Revelation titled Climax of Prophecy to our online books section. Please consider that this is found on Google Books and does not contain the book in its entirety. There is enough information however to warrant posting it.
In the Great End Time Debate, Jeremiah 31:31-34—God’s promise of a New Covenant with the House of Israel—is a true bone of contention. Realizing that this promise appears right in the middle of a host of related prophecies predicting “Israel’s” latter day restoration under the Messiah, and believing that these prophecies will be fulfilled among the Jews in a future Millennium, premillennarians are anxious to claim Jeremiah’s promise of a New Covenant for ethnic Israel.
Alas, the NT bars the way. For whenever the phrase “New Covenant” appears in the NT, it is applied to the Church, comprised both of Jew and Gentile, and not simply to ethnic Israel (Mt. 26:28, 1 Cor. 11:25, 2 Cor. 3:6-7, Heb. 8:7-8, 13, 9:15, 12:24). For this reason amillennarians conclude, naturally enough, that when God spoke through Jeremiah in 31:31-24, He was in fact speaking of eschatological “Israel”: His Church, of which ALL the saints of All time are members, both Jew and Gentile.
In this post, author Dean Davis examines Jeremiah’s great promise of a New Covenant in light of Hebrews 8. We hope it will give you fresh insight, not only into the words of Jeremiah, but into all OT Kingdom prophecy.
“We know our flights of ingenuity, and how vain curiosity tickles us to know more than we should. Christ wishes the day of His coming to be hoped for in such a way that no one would dare to ask when it will come. He deliberately wished it kept hidden from us, so that we should never be so carefree as to neglect our unbroken lookout. The chief part of our wisdom consists in keeping ourselves soberly within the bounds of the Word of God.” — John Calvin
