Supersessionism refers to the concept that the [[New Testament]] supersedes the [[Old Testament]]. But it can also refer to other vaguely related ideas that the [[Church]] supersedes ancient Israel, that the Church fulfills the missions Israel held, or that Christianity brings something new.
The term developed in Protestant scholarship in the 1970's-1980's, and its normal use is to portray traditional Church teachings on these questions, often in a negative light.
