Abstract

According to Paul, the OT predictions of the new covenant, rather than being fulfilled either in the future or in the present, are actually fulfilled in both. The present operation of the new covenant, as seen in 2 Corinthians 3, is demonstrated in the working of the Holy Spirit. But this operation is only partial and preliminary. At least one element--moral renewal--is operative in the interadvent era. Partial fulfillment of the new covenant, instead of arguing against future complete fulfillment, actually demands it.
