If I'm understanding this correctly, that means the people of the Old Testament times (both Jews and non-Jews) can be saved through the death of Jesus

Yes this is correct as God does not change

What do you mean by new creations. We all have one life on earth and are judged afterwards?

Hi @David St Ives

Do you believe the scriptre that states : Genesis 3:21  he LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.

Were people saved before - The new testament ..


What are your views on this ?

People were saved, at God's judgement. Noah is the best example. That decision is not for us to to debate. God does change. The original covenant included animal sacrifice, that changed. The ark of the covenant once held supreme power and protection, that changed and became obsolete. Circumcision was a requirement, that changed. God does change. Each generation needs to focus on the points relevant to their salvation and let God deal with the past generations

What do you make of 1 Corinthians 9:22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.

Paul was a Jew under the old Covenant - but now under the New !

God does change ? ahh that is a new argument to me...

Let me give it some thought

Jesus/Y'hushua often rebuked the Jewish scholars for their insistence on following the Torah. He reminded them they their forefathers were dead and that it wasn't the wisest decision to follow them. He reminded them of the errors of their ways. Rather than tell them he was there to save their dead, he was warning them not to follow their path. The time before the new covenant is a hot topic with regards to salvation. That's God's decision and not one to worry about. It doesn't concern us.

God would never rebuke anyone for reading or putting into "practice the Torah" the first five books of the bible"

God does not suddenly become "now"

He is the same yesterday,today and forever"
