The Kingdom Revealed from the Old Testament to the Gospel (Le Royaume révélé de l'Ancien Testament à l'Évangile)
The Christian of the 21st century can hardly afford to ignore the Old Testament. Faith, piety, prayer, human relationships today need too much to be inspired by its richness. But from what angle to approach it? And where to start? Graeme Goldsworthy offers a key reading that opens up a fascinating avenue of reflection for Christians. This key is that of the kingdom of God.
The kingdom of God takes shape, in small touches, over the stages of biblical revelation, from the Garden of Eden, until it takes on its full dimension in the life and work of Jesus.
The Old Testament, suggests Graeme Goldsworthy, moves towards the revelation of a perfect kingdom. But before this perfection - which is yet to come - there are events, characters, there are works of salvation.
This guiding thread, which crosses in particular the historical and prophetic texts of the Old Testament, allows the pieces of the puzzle to fall into place: the creation, the fall, the covenant, the kings, the prophets ... And the Old Testament becomes a story, and reads like a story, a story that leads to Jesus Christ.
Graeme Goldsworthy was Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Theology at Moore Theological College in Sydney, Australia.
