Commonly understood as the first theologian of the Christian faith, Paul set forth the categories by which we describe our relationship with Christ. Did he understand the new covenant Jesus announced at the Last Supper primarily as a replacement of the old Mosaic covenant God made with Israel, or as a renewal and completion of the old? Jason Meyer surveys the various differences that have been argued between the two covenants in The End of the Law, carefully and inductively perfoming a semantic, grammatical, and contextual analysis of all the Pauline texts dealing with covenant concepts.

GOD IS NOT YOUR PAROLE OFFICER, HE BROKE YOU OUT OF PRISON!
Have you been robbed by religion? Have you ever wondered where you really stood with God? For everyone trapped in a mindset of wondering whether God is angry or disappointed with them due to a lack of performance or dedication, help is on the way. In fact, it already arrived more than a couple thousand years ago.
Christian churches are filled with people who have been hearing Bible teaching built upon a foundation of mixing together two very different covenants that are not alike. Frequently embraced in most Christian circles, the practice of combining the old and new covenants has resulted in a diluted version of the gospel. This religious formula has caused many to avoid the institutional church altogether, often puts them in a state of confusion, and leaves them hungering and thirsting for a new identity of righteousness, unaware it has already been provided.
The current reality of unconditional love, peace, freedom, forgiveness, and everything else that is good, has been gifted to us by God's grace through the finished work of Jesus Christ. This is the message most people have been longing to experience, but it may require a complete change of mind from a lifetime of traditional church doctrines that have left many drowning in guilt and feeling as though they are in a state of bondage. God has provided a way of escape from the burdensome religious business—it is through a New Covenant where it is impossible for us to fail, because Jesus is the mediator and guarantee of this better covenant, and it has been established on better promises.

King would be terribly disheartened to see decades of anti-Semitism preached by African-American leaders who sell themselves as Dr. King’s heir to the civil rights movement. History clearly shows that those white Americans that stood by Dr. King in the 1950s and 1960s were the Jews. From activism to financial support, American Jewry was there to support the African-Americans. And just as Dr. King preached equality and justice for African-Americans, he was equally supportive of the idea of a Jewish homeland. In other words, Dr. King was a Zionist. “The whole world must see that Israel must exist and has a right to exist, and is one of the great outposts of democracy in the world,” said Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during a 1967 interview. As far back as 1968, Dr. King warned of the hatred behind using “Zionism” as code for “Jews. ” In the December 1969 issue of Encounter magazine, political sociologist Seymour Martin Lipset wrote about a Cambridge dinner he attended with Dr. King:. King snapped at him and said, ‘Don’t talk like that. You’re talking ‘anti-Semitism. Source: spectator.org
Paul uses "the Jews" to denote those among the Hebrew nation that clung to the Mosaic Covenant of Law as a means of salvation, and in doing so, they rejected the New Covenant of Grace. The phrase has no relation to the content of your anti-semitic rant

In Covenant Theology, author Jeong Koo Jeon makes a much-needed contribution to 21st century biblical and systematic theology. He explores the debate between John Murray and Meredith G. Kline, placing their ideas in the larger context of Biblical studies that have had a direct influence on Reformed theology and evangelicalism. Although the theologies of Murray and Kline contain significant differences, they both maintain a distinction between a covenant of creation and a covenant of grace. In addition, they both advocate a fundamental antithesis between law and gospel, giving a priority to law over gospel in the temporal and logical order of divine works. Jeon sees these distinctions as hermeneutic tools that are essential for better understanding of biblical revelation as well as...
