Overview

What does the New Testament teach about the spiritual gift of prophecy? What is it? How does it function? Can evangelical Christians use it in their churches today? This updated, comprehensive work answers such questions and points the way to a renewed understanding of the gift of prophecy—an understanding that suggests how the body of Christ may enjoy one of the Holy Spirit’s most edifying gifts without compromising the supremacy of Scripture.

“The most significant parallel between Old Testament prophets and New Testament apostles, however, is the ability to write words of Scripture, words that have absolute divine authority.” (Page 29)

“There is little if any evidence for a group of prophets in the New Testament churches who could speak with God’s very words (with ‘absolute divine authority’ that could not be questioned) and who had the authority to write books of Scripture for inclusion in the New Testament.” (Page 27)

“Why is this important? It is important because official messengers do not just carry their own authority. They speak with the authority of the one who sent them.” (Page 22)

“It is not surprising, then, that when we read the New Testament we find several times when the apostles are connected with the Old Testament prophets, but New Testament prophets, by contrast, are never connected with Old Testament prophets in the same way.” (Page 28)

“One marked parallel between the Old Testament prophet and the New Testament apostle is that an apostle was commissioned by Christ, ‘sent’ by him on a specific apostolic mission just as Old Testament prophets were ‘sent’ by God as his messengers.” (Page 27)
