What’s Progressive About Dispensationalism

The term “progressive” is used by its advocates in the progressive revelation sense, i. e., to underscore the unfolding nature of God’s plan and the successive (not different) arrangements of the various dispensations as they ultimately culminate in Christ.

In this way, progressive dispensationalists stress the continuity of God’s plan across redemptive-history, and in this regard, they are much close to how covenant theology understands the unfolding nature of God’s plan, yet with important differences.
