In this number of The Conservative Theological Journal we have selected a group of articles on a variety of issues, which we trust you will enjoy studying. Kevin Zuber of Moody Bible Institute starts things off with a timely essay on the matter of whether the Baptism of the Spirit that we read about in the New Testament, is to be connected with the New Covenant passages in the Prophets. Some Dispensationalists have accepted the Progressive Dispensationalist notion that there is a true continuity found between the Testaments on a correct reading of the verses involved. Dr Zuber shows why this is not the case, arguing that the old Dispensational distinctions should be preserved.
Next, Dave Olander of Tyndale Seminary gives an interesting study of “Signs, Miracles and Wonders” in the Bible, concentrating on the question of why God employed them and what significance they carried.
It is great to welcome Eugene Merrill back to the Journal. His contribution is an inquiry into the significance of the Divine Word in the Old Testament. There has been very little development of this vital subject in Old Testament theology and we are pleased to bring it before our readership.
Ron Bigalke has written a timely piece on the Roman Catholic Mass. In an age when evangelicals are altogether too genteel towards false doctrine it is important to be reminded (not to say warned) about this central pillar of Catholicism.
Talking of pillars, Tyndale Seminary’s new President, Christopher Cone, has written a fine article on theological method that speaks to a neglected topic: upon what foundations or “pillars” does one construct a Dispensational theology?
Finally, we apologize to our readership for being late on this issue of the Journal. The next issue will be in its usual August berth (DV). Thank you for your patience. We hope you will find enough here to keep the brain cells busy and to encourage spiritual growth.
To God be the Glory!
