A. Types of Supersessionism
a) Israel sinned so Israel is replaced
b) The Church Father and this type of supersessionism
(1) the epistle of Barnabas
(a) “Ye ought therefore to understand. Moreover I ask you this one thing besides, as being one of yourselves and loving you all in particular more than my own soul, to give heed to yourselves now, and not to liken yourselves to certain persons who pile up sin upon sin, saying that our covenant remains to them also”
(2) . Michael Vlach in his article: for Masters seminary states,
(a) "When the writings of the church theologians of the patristic period are compiled, a consensus on five issues emerges… 3. The church is the new Israel… 4. As the new Israel, the church assumes the Jewish scriptures and covenant blessings that were given first to the nation Israel
a) This view is not as harsh as punitive Supersessionism since it does not emphasize Israel’s disobedience and punishment as the primary reason for its displacement as the people of God. Instead, it focuses on God’s plan for the people of God to transfer from an ethnic group (Israel) to a universal group not based on ethnicity (church).
