The Logic of the Old/New Testament?

The Greek word logos, from which we get the word logic, is also used in reference to God’s Word. The division of the Bible between the Old and New Testament is not only illogical but completely unbiblical. There can be no new testament while the testator is living. A testament (will) is of no effect until after the testator has died!

God who is the Holy Spirit divided the Bible into 8 sections called dispensations or administrations, oikonomia. By revelation, Jesus Christ, revealed the one we live in today to the apostle Paul. A major paradigm shift occurred  when the Apostle Paul came on the scene, a shift from believers living under the Law of Moses to that of the grace of God, through faith in Christ Jesus.

Paul introduced to us the oikonomia of Grace, called the Secret. It is called the Secret because God kept it a secret from the beginning of the world. Prior to his ascension, Jesus didn’t even know about it; imagine that, his own Father didn’t even tell him. We are presently in the 5th administration of the Bible. The one previous to this one was the Law Administration which was governed by the Law of Moses. Prior to that was Judges, Conscience and the original Paradise. The book of Acts serves as a transition or adjustment period between Law and Grace.

The Law administration ended with the death and raising again of our Lord Jesus, as Jesus fulfilled the Law. Pretty logical isn’t it. It stands to reason that since Jesus fulfilled the Law, that the Law of Moses was in effect during the gospels of Matthew, Mark Luke and John. Therefore, these gospels cannot be considered part of what Bible Translators called the New Testament.

Think on that a while. Logic and reason have been replaced by mysticism in the mind of most believers. When we accept as true, illogical concepts , our minds become blinded to the truth. When something we believe doesn’t make any sense, it is probably not true.

Does this make sense to you?

About fredswolfe

I was born in 1949 and raised in Paris, Illinois. I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1967 and received an assignment to serve aboard the U.S.S. Mauna Loa, AE-8 off the coast of Vietnam. During my three years and nine months of active duty, I toured the Mediterranean Sea twice and the Caribbean Sea once. What an experience to look back on! I was separated from the Navy three months early to attend College of the Redwoods in Eureka, California. Near the end of my first term as Student Body President, I received Jesus Christ and became born again in 1974. I have been studying the Bible, The Word of God and teaching others ever since. I have been married for thirty five years to my wife Joanne, from Whitestone, New York. We are the proud parents of two grown sons and two granddaughters and two grandsons. We have lived in Illinois, New York, Arizona and California, where we now make our home, in Marina Del Rey.
