Sub-Christian Reading

"The New Testament's witness is clear - as also understood in the early church - that a proper reading of the Jewish Scriptures is one that reads them as fulfilled in Christ (otherwise, it is a sub-Christian reading) while also not denigrating or denying the continuing validity of the Old Testament's own witness (as opposed to Marcion's famous heretical view). 'Fulfillment' is the key idea here."
