John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Is Covenant Theology the Same as Replacement Theology?

Recommended Posts

Replacement theology is understood to be the view that the Church has replaced God's chosen people, the Jews, entirely, and that God wants nothing more to do with them as a people. It says that since Israel rejected their Messiah, they forfeit all of their God-given promises over to the Church. So given this definition, is Covenant Theology the Same as Replacement Theology? This phrase is often used as a pejorative term for what some imagine is Covenant Theology to be, but as the following resources point out, it is a false accusation.  The following are some resources we have found that gives some thought to the subject.
