Clarifications on Justification:
Questions submitted by Brethren:
Do the Body Members have a part in providing the Ransom-price? [ii par. 2]
What clear scriptural evidence is there to suggest that the New Covenant for the Church is a different covenant which is apparently a New Law Covenant during the Millennium for the peoples and Israel (natural)?

What is the difference between the Covenant by Sacrifice and the New Covenant?
With whom is the New Covenant made?
Who will eventually be counted as the earthly seed of Abraham?
How does one know when they are fully justified? And how does one become, by covenant, a disciple of Jesus?

To whom does full justification from sin belong?
What is the difference between Justification to Life and Tentative Justification? [iii par. 2]
What is the difference between justification by faith and justification after consecration?
When does Tentative Justification become Full Justification to Life?
What benefit is there for the many who believe partially in Jesus, and who are not fully justified?
What justification comes to someone who has learned the truth, tells God he wants to serve Him, but does not have a heavenly hope?
What should be our motive for wanting the heavenly hope? What is “the joy set before us”?
What differences are there in the view of the Heavenly Calling between Jehovah’s Witnesses and the writings of Brother Russell?
