Theology of One

A LAYMAN'S THEOLOGY

The Theology of One is grounded in Scripture. Our Lord Jesus prayed “Sanctify them by the truth; your Word is truth”. We have a diverse faith in our Christian communities that hinder us from the oneness in faith that Jesus intended. In the same prayer he said, “I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one”.   
The goal of this blog is to bring unity through liked mindedness of the interpretation of Scripture. The Lord has given me a great desire to study His Word.  I am a layman who has studied the Scriptures for over 40 years with very little institutional influence just the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I have written many unpublished papers as well as a manual (survey, book) with over 100 citation that support my theology. The diversity of faith in our “Christian communities” have divide God’s people. My goal toward oneness is to be like the Bereans in Acts 17:11 “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true." Discussion is welcome but within the limits of the basic tenet.  All points will be measured by the tenet. May the Lord Jesus bless this endeavor.

How did Jesus fulfill the Law?

Updated: Sep 8, 2019

How was the law abolished?

I have read many answers on this subject on this post all satisfactory answers but I’d like to go deep, I will attempt to answer this question with bullet point but understand in depth answer would be lengthy.

· The law was given in order to make known transgressions, to compel men to acknowledge their guilt. Roman 3:20

· The Law was put in place till the promise seed arrived Galatians 3:19

· The promised seed is Jesus promised to Adam in the Garden after the Fall Genesis 3:15

· This seed is the Second and Last Adam 1 Corinthians 15:45,47

· God preserved the unfallen nature of Adam in the seed of the woman this is why Jesus is called the Second and Last Adam the only other True human. Genesis 3:15

· All born of Adam are fallen humans and bear the image of Adam therefore sinners. Genesis 5:3 Romans 5:12

· This is the reason for the Virgin Birth to bypass Adam’s corrupted seed. Isaiah 7:14

· The Law of Atonement required the Lambs to be without blemish. Numbers 29:8

· Law of an eye for an eye for justice to be served demanded a reciprocal payment. Exodus 21:24

So, Jesus the Second and Last Adam was the fulfillment of this Law. He was the Lamb without blemish able to abolish the Law making payment by His death on the Cross. But you say wouldn’t the sacrifice only apply for Adam since its an eye for an eye. Yes, I would but the was no ordinary man this was God in the flesh, so HIS SACRIFICE was sufficient for all.

There is so much more to this, I can go on and give you more implication more golden apples, but this is enough for now. I have started a post in Soteriology labeled The Cross where I will be continuing this line of think as well. I have a blog and in there is an article written by me titled The Forgotten Atonement with a different insight. My profile has the web address look under “more” on home page.
