What's Normative?

A description of an event involving the apostles or the primitive church does not necessarily stand as the pattern for all time. We recognize the existence of elements of discontinuity between us and the Old Testament, but we do not so readily recognize those that exist between us and the New Testament.

-- Graeme Goldsworthy, Preaching the Whole Bible as Christian Scripture, p.XIV
