Fellow blogger, Jason, has a post that I thought I might highlight. Correct him. Encourage him. Or just visit him.
In my time of studying the Bible I have often wondered about the New Testament use of the Old Testament. Of special concern were Matthew 2:11-15 and Galatians 3:16. Did the New Testament writers use some sort of Holy Ghost exegesis that led them to their conclusions? Did they simply impose their doctrine upon the Old Testament texts? Neither of these things truly seemed to be in keeping with the integrity of a Christian character, nor did they seem to be consistent with Divine inspiration. What was I to do, then? What was I to believe about this issue? This short paper is my effort to come to a conclusion based upon the two texts above.
