By Stephen Motyer
At the center of this daring starting assertion by way of Stephen Motyer is the conviction that Jesus Christ is the ‘centre’ of the Scriptures, although he in basic terms appears to be like on the finish. For the hot testomony writers, Jesus Christ revolutionized their knowing of the Scriptures and gave them a brand new centre round which to interpret the paintings of God on this planet – and the climax of that paintings is the ‘second coming’ of that very same Jesus Christ.
Jesus himself used the language of the Scriptures to vow his ‘coming again’, the ‘coming of the Son of Man’. as a result we'd like the complete of Scripture to appreciate what the second one coming potential for us at the present time. the truth that the Bible ends with the prayer ‘Come, Lord Jesus!’ (Revelation 22:20) is deeply acceptable. the second one coming is the ‘end’ of the biblical message, its ‘omega point’, its grand finale, the denouement whilst all of the avid gamers within the drama of earth historical past, either human and angelic, are accrued within the drawing room to listen to the grasp unpack the plot and provides the verdict.
Motyer’s complete, stimulating examine is split into components. half One, ‘The biblical frame’, examines 3 previous testomony passages and lays the root for half , ‘New testomony hopes and visions’, which explores a sequence of key texts. He specializes in the second one coming, instead of on millennialism or the ‘end times’, to be able to give you the basic biblical theology that needs to underlie our complete feel of God’s destiny for his world.
