In my last post, I talked about restoring the first century church. Someone reminded me that this goal is short-sighted, because first you have to figure out which first-century church you plan to restore:
- the Jewish, Mosaic-Law-keeping church of the early years;
- the mixed Jewish/Gentile church of the middle of the century;
- or the Gentile church of the later part of the century.
I've written more on this here.
