The Criterion of New Testament Interpretation.
"The Book of the Acts."
pp. 41 - 44
Under the above title, the Bible Testimony, Dixonville, Pa., U.S.A., have issued a
most illuminating and convincing circular, and we felt that our readers would so
appreciate the evidence assembled therein that we have obtained the gracious permission
of the Bible Testimony to re-print it in our pages. Readers will not only value this outline
for its own sake, but also as an evidence of the interest in dispensational truth that is
growing in the United States of America:
"The ministry during the period covered by the Book of the Acts is a continuation and
confirmation, by the Apostles, `Of all that Jesus began both to do and teach' (Acts 1: 1).
Throughout the Book features that distinguish the `Acts Administration' from the
present `Body Administration' are very distinct and outstanding.
Points in the Acts, that stand out prominently as being exclusively applicable to the
presence of Israel, as a Nation, and the absence of the Church, the Body of Christ, are as
Confirmation of Christ's Earth Ministry.
