Replacement Theology

This is that time of year when I believe I have lost my way: for what used to be is no longer. (Of what is now, I shall not comment.)

I don't have the answers but notice how the mystagogic readings of the first two columns have gradually given way to the clearly theological spins of the last two. (Interesting too that the Gallican preserves the Byzantine lections, as highlighted in yellow.)
