Perspectives on Worship, Law and Faith

by C van Dam

The New Old Testament speaks today

Prof Cornelis van Dam, delivered a series of lectures in Perth, Western Australia in 1999. Collected here in this book, the lectures were titled:

- What is Worship? This lecture covers whom, where, when, why and how we worship.

- Clean and Unclean. Old Testament and New Testament perspectives, and the implications for today.

- Where is the Old Testament Deacon? Who are the poor, how the poor were helped, towards the New Testament, and NT implications for today.

- Faith and Reason. Luther's 95 Theses, Three approaches (Fideism, Historical-critical, Evidentialism), and the starting point.

A common theme that runs through the first three speeches is that the Old Testament legislation is still relevant for today. The principles underlying the laws respecting worship, clean and unclean, and the care of the poor and needy are as applicable today as they were then. God’s Word includes the Old Testament laws and their message still needs to be heard. Although the ceremonies and symbols of the law have been fulfilled in Christ so that their use has properly been abolished, yet “their truth and substance remain for us in Jesus Christ” (Belgic Confession, Art. 25). The purpose of these lectures is to show something of the truth and substance of the gospel that is embedded in the Old Testament laws and to help sensitise us to the fact that the New Testament gospel has its basis in the Old Covenant. Neglecting the Old Testament message is of great detriment to understanding the glory, depth, and perspective of the New.
