Is there anything recent in the publications about Jesus only being the ransom for annointed?
You may want to note that the discussion of the Israel of God in this comment trail is a replay of that between Adventists and Age to Come believers from the 1830s onward. The Watchtower has been on both sides of the issue.
Darkspilver- Look up 'Mediator' as the main heading - then look down to 'Jesus Christ', then 'for anointed only:'
I haven't noticed that before. A simply elegant way to prove to a JW that this is their teaching.
At every memorial wt proclaims that the ransom, through the New Covenant, is only for the anointed.
The New Covenant is for forgiveness of "sins" and god's law in the hearts, and wt can not bear the thought that anyone but them would qualify, after all the universe will revolve around them too, , right?
