These issues cluster round a standard heart: Yahweh, the God of the previous testomony. This God is portrayed in several roles, that have hooked up to them position expectancies for either Yahweh and people with whom he assumes courting. via contextual exegesis of key texts, we come to appreciate those roles and linked themes.
While the previous testomony has its personal unique contributions to make to divine revelation, a lot of its fabric is reused within the New testomony to provide an explanation for and validate the hot testomony message. by way of targeting the outdated testomony, we discover ways to delight in the big debt the hot testomony owes to the previous in clarifying New testomony theological and ethical perspectives.
"This fabulous booklet grew out of a process lectures expounding a 'Biblical Theology of the previous testomony for Pastors.' Who greater than my colleague, Leslie Allen, to write down in this topic? He loves the outdated testomony and he has a pastor's middle (every Friday he places his Hebrew Bible down and visits our neighborhood sanatorium as a chaplain). No risk that this quantity will both promote the reader brief at the inherent value of the outdated testomony or promote the reader brief on its importance within the context of Christian religion. And it does certainly satisfy either one of these expectations."
