The use of Amos 9:11-12 in Acts 15 has been much discussed. Many covenant theologians has seen this text as evidence for the church replacing Israel. Dispensational exegetes treat this text as not relevant for the present age but a reference to a future state of affairs. Hays seeks to follow a third alternative and steer clear of the pitfalls mentioned. He first explores the context of Amos 9 and then how James quotes from the LXX of Amos 9 before giving theological consideration to the rule of Christ.
