About Us

JZ

Jon Zens is an American author, speaker, scholar and theologian on Christian topics. Zens is best known for pioneering New Covenant Theology, which sees the entire Bible as a revelation of the gospel of grace fulfilled in Jesus Christ.

Christians are no longer under the Law of Moses, but under grace.

According to Zens, the Law is fulfilled in Christ and reveals Christ. Jesus’s words to love God and love one another fulfills the Law. New Covenant Christians are called to walk in love and through repentance and faith in Christ, they can receive God’s grace, which includes the forgiveness of sins and the power to do God’s will. See “Is There a Covenant of Grace?” by Jon Zens

Zens is also an expert on the Anabaptist history and theology. He holds a B.A. in Biblical studies from Covenant College, a M.Div. from Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, and a D.Min. from the California Graduate School of Theology.

He is the editor of Searching Together magazine, which was originally started in 1972 as the Baptist Reformation Review. The original editor was Norbert Ward, based in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1975, Zens moved to Nashville to work with Norbert on the magazine.

  1. Hi,
    I read with interest Laurie Fasullo’s treatise on Paul’s use of the word “head” (Kephale’) in 1 Corinthians 11, esp. vv 3-16. In her work, Laurie states several times that she is going to give us her understanding of 1 Co. 11:3-16. I can’t seem to find that in her paper. Can someone, preferably Laurie, give me her interpretation of verses 3-16? I completely understand why Laurie does NOT think these verses refer to a “authority over” position, but would like to understand what she DOES think these verses say.
    Thanks much.
    Jim Gosnell

  2. Jim, the main thrust of Laurie’s article was the meaning of “kephale” (head). It’s been many years since I edited her piece, so it is possible I left out her view of 1 Cor 11:3-16 for the sake of space. There are, of course, excellent commentaries on 1 Cor 11 by people like Gordon Fee, N.T. Wright and Ben Witherington III. My reflections on these verses over the years have shown that many people have totally missed Paul’s conclusion in verses 11-12 — “Nevertheless, in the Lord….” He ends with a line of thought that underscores mutuality between husband and wife in the bonds of Jesus Christ. Shouldn’t the “in the Lord” catch our attention? -JZ

    I look forward to subscribing!
    Before I discovered your Christ centric teachings, after 40 years of absorbing Scripture and much reflection, God gave me the following based on: The same two things which the children of Israel neglected are the same two things the body of Christ today is neglecting—- The Covenant and the Priesthood!

    The main message of the Bible is the prophesied, blood bought and glorious New Covenant of grace which continuously puts the spotlight on Jesus Christ and who we are in Him; which is a redeemed and beloved child of God AND Kingdom of Priests at new birth; whose primary purpose is to minister unto the Lord in the inner court as a Priest, to be nearest His presence; thus being empowered as a conduit to present Jesus Himself to others and bring the Kingdom of God to earth!

    Based on the revelation of Christ God has granted you it appears we have a very similar understanding of our New Covenant Himself ( Isaiah 42 & 49) as well as the fact that Jesus blood is not generic but specifically New Covenant blood. ( Luke 22:20)

    I am SO so encouraged to discover Christ In you my dear brother! I am “a least of these” who God delivered from a 16 crack addiction. But I view the New Covenant as Gods authentic plumb line for His precious body. And our common enemy HATES the New Covenant blood of Christ the most… So many falsehoods would “ fly out” of the Church if Scriptural New Covenant revelation would take hold. Please feel free to alert me of others blogs and writers where their are real Christ centric disciples, if you get a chance. Every single online blog I find is co-opted by the Hebrew Roots folk masquerading as Christians. A primary gifting God granted this chief of sinners is discernment of spirits which has been confirmed over and over during 40 years and its breaks my heart to “ see” Religious, Cultic and Legalistic “ things deceive, confuse and distract from Christ Himself. He. Him. Being in fellowship with those in the false apostolic- prophetic movement for many years it is so apparent what Satan is doing there..Some prominent leaders there actually respect the gifting of Christ in me but I do not hold back from warning them of the falsehoods they teach.

    Thank you for reading this. My heart is SO encouraged to read what Christ has revealed to you.
