OT: Born Again?
Below is a comment from me in the post below. I started wondering there, and thought I would post it here and see if anyone can deposit some thoughts on my question. Solifidian had given an excellent link to an article by Zane Hodges regarding the New Covenant and how the church fits into it.
REGENERATION: A NEW COVENANT BLESSING
I wonder about the idea of regeneration in the OT. My idea of regeneration has always been that the HS comes to dwell within a person and from what I can tell, this did not happen until the day of Pentecost as the church began. I must say, though, the Sripture Hodges quotes about Saul receiving a new heart is definitely something to think upon.
What do you think? Were OT people "born again" and if so, was this different that the HS coming to dwell in people as it does to believers in the church? If you see no difference, then what was the significance of the day of Pentecost?
