WHAT IS NEW COVENANT THEOLOGY?
In 1977, New Covenant Theology began to emerge as a developing theological system through the diligent labors of such men as S. Lewis Johnson, Gary D. Long, John Reisinger, and Tom Wells. However, what is New Covenant Theology? In addition to the many explanations that have already been put forth, PTI suggests the following as a concise definition of New Covenant Theology (NCT): ďa theological system which emphasizes that Jesus Christ is the nexus & climax of Godís plan in redemptive history, that the New Testament Scriptures have interpretive priority over the Old Testament Scriptures due to the former being the final revelation of God, and that the new covenant truly is a new arrangement between God and man; this system also strives to maintain the biblical tension of continuity and discontinuity found in ScriptureĒ (PTSJ 1.1 (Nov 2014): 3). This eclectic theological system seeks to achieve a clearer and more accurate understanding of Scripture through the consistent application of the Protestant axiom of sola Scriptura, Christotelic (or Christocentric) hermeneutics and a biblical theology. As a theological system, NCT has a great deal in common with both Dispensational Theology (DT) and Covenant Theology (CT). That being said, NCT does differ with these two systems at certain points - differences that are non-essential to the Christian faith. Some these differences are outlined in the 'description' links below.
