Update 11:52 CST from 1689Federalism.com newsletter:
The much anticipated follow-up to Jeffrey D. Johnson’s The Fatal Flaw in the Theology of Infant Baptism is now available at Free Grace Press. The Kingdom of God: A Baptist Expression of Covenant and Biblical Theology expands upon the insights Johnson introduced in his first book. Part 1 unpacks the dichotomous nature of the Abrahamic Covenant and how it relates to the rest of covenant theology. Part 2 recounts the march of the Kingdom of God throughout redemptive history.
This unique contribution will drive us into the Word to better understand God’s dealings with men throughout history. As Michael Horton said, “A stimulating line of argument. So much to engage with!”
Check out the rest of the newblast from today for an excerpt, here is one paragraph from it:
…once the promise seed of Abraham was born with the ￼￼￼￼birth of Christ, it was no longer necessary to keep the genealogical line of Abraham alive. Therefore, the dreadful curses of the Abrahamic and Mosaic Covenant were unleashed upon Israel in full. The kingdom that was promised to them, would be given to the Gentiles (Matt. 8:11-12; 21:43), and the curses of the covenant would be executed upon Israel. As Christ boldly pronounced: “Behold, your house (racial lineage) is left unto you desolate” (Matt.￼23:38).40 And, as the author of Hebrews claimed: “[B]ecause they continued not in my covenant…I regarded them not, saith the Lord” (Heb. 8:9). Therefore, Paul stated that the “wrath [of God has] come upon them [the Jews] to the uttermost” (1 Thess. 2:16).
