George Eldon Ladd's comprehensive treatment of New Testament eschatology has become the definitive discussion of the theological interpretation known as "inaugurated eschatology." Reflecting profound biblical insight and a balanced treatment of conflicting views, this volume convincingly develops Ladd's thesis that the kingdom of God involves two great movements -- its present fulfillment in Jesus and its future consummation in the last days. Ladd begins this revised edition (formerly titled Jesus and the Kingdom) by taking readers step by step through the findings of his predecessors and contemporaries on the great debate as to whether the kingdom of God promised by Jesus is now, in the immediate future, or in some unknown time to come. He then traces the prophetic expectation of the kingdom in the Old Testament, pursues the development of this expectation through the intertestamental literature, and, against this background, reconstructs the teaching and mission of Jesus. Ultimately, Ladd finds the key to understanding the kingdom in the concept of "the rule of God." His interpretation of the divine reign brings together the Old Testament promise of the kingdom, its fulfillment in history, and its consummation at the end of history. - Back cover.

What the Bible Teaches about the Future

What the Bible Teaches about the Future

The Biblical books are like navigation charts, marking out the points of progress along the way ... the landmarks, the deeps, the safe channels, and the reefs where men get shipwrecked. The great day will come when the goal is reached.

Contrary to all other world and life views, Scripture teaches the unfolding purpose of the all-wise God. He created the universe for a purpose and that purpose will be achieved. There is a horizon, and God tells us a great deal about it. We are sailing infallibly towards the horizon purposed by God in his eternal plan. The Biblical books are like navigation charts, marking out the points of progress along the way ... the landmarks, the deeps, the safe channels, and the reefs where men get shipwrecked. The great day will come when the goal is reached. There is land ahoy. The last trumpet will be sounded. The journey will be completed. Temporal things will give way to final things.

Preaching's Preacher's Guide to the Best Bible Reference for 2014 (Scripture/Hermeneutics) The Bible encompasses a plurality of voices, not only in genre but in perspective. And not surprisingly, interpreters of the Bible have generated a plurality of interpretations. How might biblical scholars work responsibly with and within this plurality? And what are the future directions or possibilities for biblical hermeneutics? The essays in The Future of Biblical Interpretation originated in a conference held in honor of Anthony C. Thiselton, who is well known for his important work in hermeneutics and New Testament interpretation. After an opening essay by Thiselton on "The Future of Biblical Interpretation and Responsible Plurality in Hermeneutics," the contributors look at the issues from a variety of angles—theological, scriptural, kerygmatic, historical, critical, ecclesial and relational. The result is an engaging conversation exploring responsible and productive interpretation of the Bible. A must-read for anyone seriously engaged in biblical scholarship today.

The Future According to Bible Prophecy

The Future According to Bible Prophecy

This book will give the reader a much better understanding of what God has planned for this world’s future.

This book will give the reader a much better understanding of what God has planned for this world’s future. Prior to Tribulation, the Church (the believers in Jesus Christ) will be caught up, raptured, and will meet the Lord in the air. Much of what is written in numerous books of the Bible that deal with prophecy is written in symbolic language, often making it difficult to understand. One purpose of this book is to reveal and explain to the reader what is meant by those symbols, thereby giving the reader a glimpse and a better understanding of what the future holds. Additionally, when dealing with a specific subject such as an event that was prophesied in the book of Revelation, often, that subject is covered in other verses of that book and/or in other books within the Bible. The comparing of scripture with scripture supports, sheds light, explains, and/or reinforces our understanding of that particular passage. Following the Tribulation is the Millennium, the one-thousand-year reign with Christ.
