For the purposes of publication, each lecture has been divided into two chapters. With the exception of the last two chapters, the study is centered in our Lord's teachings, for the kingdom of God is one of the most central themes in his Evangel. It will appear to many to be a weakness that so little appeal is made to the Old Testament prophecies; but I am convinced that we must interpret the Old Testament by the New and not vice versa, and this procedure has been deliberately followed. - Author's foreword.

In the New Testament purifyng it from the Jewish nationalism Jesus puts in prominence the moral character of the Kingdom of God, making it the gift of grace underlining its eschatological and transcendent essence. In Jesus words and actions the Kingdom of God was present in its fullness. In the eschatological sense Christ's life, death and resurrection belong to the history of the kingdom of God. Since the resurection the history of the Kingdom of God has become the history of the missions. The Kingdom of God is the redemptive reign of God dynamically active to eteblish his rule among men, and this Kingdom has already come into human history in the person and mission of Jesus to overcome evil to deliver humans from its power, and to bring them into the blessings of God's reign. The church remains on earth as the as the sign of the kingdom of God, namely as the presence of Christ after the ascension. She prolongs and continues the mistery of Christ and his mission in the world. The second Vatican Council understands the term as a series of works done by God (SC 35; DV 2) from creation(LG2) to parousia (LG 48) and includes also human co-operation with grace (LG 65) Christ , the Lord of all active in creation, points to God the Father who in the Spirit leads and guides history. It is in this context that we have to undestand the active presence of the Triune God in other religions. Thus the Kingdom of God is Christocentric and Trinitarian. (Novo Millennio Ineunte 5). At the centre of the new evangelization there should be, always, Jesus Christ , Way, Truth, and Life. New Evangelization signifies the announcing of the Good News, i.e., God loves humans, he saves them in Jesus Christ, his Son, and calls them to salvation

The kingdom of God is not explained anywhere in the New Testament, yet it seems to be everywhere understood. No explanation was ever needed, and so none was given. In The Future Kingdom of God: A Present Reality and Our Blessed Hope, author Father Steven Scherrer presents an in-depth study of the kingdom of God as it appears in the scriptures. Based on an edited collection of original sermons and essays revolving around the New Testament doctrine of the kingdom of God, this thorough discussion provides a guide for those seeking insight into various aspects about the second coming of Jesus Christ. Some of the topics on which the essays reflect include • the splendor of the kingdom of God now present, as seen in the Church’s Advent and Christmas liturgies; • the millennial hope as the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy; • the enchanted expectation of the Parousia, as seen in the Church’s autumn liturgies; • the longing to be found innocent in holiness at the coming of the Lord. Using the scriptures and examples from the Bible, The Future Kingdom of God demonstrates how Christians can, by faith, now live in the splendor of God’s kingdom present in their midst.

The New Testament is the foundation of the Christian church, but some question its historical accuracy. Others have claimed that Paul's teaching differs from that of the Gospels. How can we reconcile the seemingly different messages of Jesus and Paul? What is the relevance of the New Testament in our world today, in cultures far removed by time and space from the first-century Mediterranean world? What principles can we use to make appropriate applications? In Making Sense of the New Testament, Craig Blomberg offers a reasonable, well-informed response to these crucial questions encountered by Bible readers. Grounded in sound scholarship but written in an accessible style, this book offers reliable guidance to pastors, students, and anyone interested in a better understanding of the New Testament.

Students of the New Testament and of theology will both find their vision broadened and their understanding deepened by this rich, informative study. As the author seeks to understand their implications for people of faith, she uncovers how New Testament images provide the building blocks of the master story of redemption.

Serious students of the Bible sometimes lose sight of the fact that the study and interpretation of Scripture should never be an end in itself. God has given men His Word written for a practical purpose:“That the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (II Tim. 3:17). When a gulf exists between the lecture-room and the pulpit, sterility in the class-room and superficiality in the pulpit often result. The present author has given much attention to the technical study of the Biblical doctrine of the Kingdom of God. No teaching of the New Testament has been more vigorously debated than this. However, the Kingdom of God was the central message of our Lord’s ministry. He “went about all Galilee ... preaching the gospel of the kingdom” (Matt. 4:23). This element of proclamation has often been engulfed in debate and argument. The following pages are proclamation. While it is obvious that a distinct point of view underlies the proclamation, the purpose is not to defend the point of view or to discuss optional interpretations or critical and theological problems, but to attempt to follow our Lord’s example by proclaiming Good News.

This classic work on 1 and 2 Thessalonians has proved ? and will continue to prove ? useful to a wide range of readers, including scholars, pastors, Bible students, and educated Christians.

The Millennial Kingdom is a comprehensive biblical and historical treatment of the doctrine of the millennium written for the pastor, students, scholar, or layperson. The three leading millennial views -- postmillennialism, amillennialism, and premillennialism -- are presented in the context of their history, their theology, and their biblical interpretation. Dr. Walvoord presents postmillennialism first and then discusses amillennialism. However, the subject of premillenialism forms the main body of the work. The author introduces premillennialism with a survey of its historical background in the Old and New Testaments and in the history of the church. Its theological setting and methods of interpretation are discussed. A presentation of the character of the millennium concludes the volume.

Yung Suk Kim asks important questions in Biblical Interpretation: Why do we care about the Bible and biblical interpretation? How do we know which interpretation is better? He expertly brings to the fore the essential elements of interpretation--the reader, the text, and the reading lens--and attempts to explore a set of criteria for solid interpretation. While celebrating the diversity of biblical interpretation, Kim warns that not all interpretations are valid, legitimate, or healthy because interpretation involves the complex process of what he calls critical contextual biblical interpretation. He suggests that readers engage with the text by asking important questions of their own: Why do we read? How do we read? and What do we read?

A Critical Realist s Theological Method

A Critical Realist's Theological Method explores a systematic theology method grounded in critical realism in the wake of Alister McGrath, Imre Lakatos, Nancey Murphy, N. T. Wright, and Dale Allison. Kennard surveys philosophical and traditional theological approaches for contributions and limitations in order to set out a method for theology and science. Kennard extends this method to a Thiselton-Ricoeur hermeneutic that can fund insightful exegesis and Biblical theology in the wake of Ladd, Dunn, Vos, and Goldingay. This Biblical theology method is illustrated by wisdom literature, the traditional reef of the discipline and then developed for the contributions toward systematic theology as Gabler had originally envisioned. With contextualized Scripture sourcing most of the content for systematic theology the trajectory is shown in the subtitle Returning the Bible and Biblical Theology to be the Framer for Theology and Science. The method is exampled in exegesis of creation texts which frame possibilities for science. Likewise, Biblical theology frames a bio-ethics integration of psychology and theology setting out a transactional model for psychological recovery with University of Chicago professor Paul Holmes. A theology for peer review and work is also framed.

Are these the last days? Could Jesus return at any time to establish his thousand-year reign on earth? What is the nature of Christ’s millennial kingdom referred to in the book of Revelation? What must happen before Jesus returns, and what part does the church play? Three predominant views held by evangelicals seek to answer these and related questions: premillennial, postmillennial, and amillennial. This book gives each view a forum for presentation, critique, and defense. Besides each contributor’s personal perspective, various interpretations of the different positions are discussed in the essays. Three Views on the Millennium and Beyond lets you compare and contrast three important eschatological viewpoints to gain a better understanding of how Christianity’s great hope, the return of Jesus, is understood by the church. The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Bible and Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.
