My friend Rick at Endued posted Justin’s explanation to his Jewish friend Trypho about why spiritual gifts were transferred from Jews to Christ to Christians. I had never thought about spiritual gifts in the Old Covenant before, but Justin certainly had:
Now, that [you may know that] your prophets, each receiving some one or two powers from God, did and spoke the things which we have learned from the Scriptures, attend to the following remarks of mine. Solomon possessed the spirit of wisdom, Daniel that of understanding and counsel, Moses that of might and piety, Elijah that of fear, and Isaiah that of knowledge; and so with the others: each possessed one power, or one joined alternately with another; also Jeremiah, and the twelve [prophets], and David, and, in short, the rest who existed amongst you.
Rick cites Ronald Kydd’s argument that this is evidence that these charismatic gifts continued in the 2nd century.
