Apostolic Exegesis

"We must learn from how the New Testament writers themselves interpreted the Old Testament. When we do this, we will see that the Old Testament prophecies concerning the nation of Israel are fulfilled in Christ and in the gospel."

-Ben Merkle, "Old Testament Restoration Prophecies Regarding the Nation of Israel: Literal or Symbolic?," The Southern Baptist Journal of Theology 14.1 (Spring 2010), 21.
