Saphir: all Scripture is Gospel

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
    Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
    —Galatians 3:24-25 (KJV)
    When Paul speaks [II Cor. 3] of our being ministers of the New Testament, he does not refer to books most of which were not yet written, but to the gospel, which he found in the Scripture he possessed. The Jews could only see “Old Testament” in Moses and the prophets, because they were blind. To the spiritual all Scripture is gospel, or New Testament (the Law being the schoolmaster, bringing us to Christ), but to the natural and self righteous, as we ought to know from experience and observation, all Scripture (gospels and epistles included) is Old Testament, or Covenant of Works.
    ... Adolph Saphir (1831-1891), Christ and Israel, London: Morgan and Scott, 1911, p. 191 (see the book)
    See also Gal.3:24-25; Gen. 15:6; Jer. 31:31-34; 32:40; Mark 14:24; Luke 22:20; 1 Cor. 11:25; 2 Cor. 3:6; Heb. 8:6-13; 9:15; 10:16-17; 13:20-21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I praise You for the liberty of Your new covenant.
