‘The moment coming of Jesus Christ is the middle of the biblical worldview, the climax of the biblical message, the cornerstone of biblical theology, and the centrepiece of genuine biblical religion for the twenty-first century.’

At the center of this daring commencing assertion by way of Stephen Motyer is the conviction that Jesus Christ is the ‘centre’ of the Scriptures, although he purely appears to be like on the finish. For the recent 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’. for this reason we'd like the total of Scripture to appreciate what the second one coming capacity for us this present day. the truth that the Bible ends with the prayer ‘Come, Lord Jesus!’ (Revelation 22:20) is deeply applicable. the second one coming is the ‘end’ of the biblical message, its ‘omega point’, its grand finale, the denouement whilst the entire gamers within the drama of earth heritage, 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 learn is split into elements. half One, ‘The biblical frame’, examines 3 outdated testomony passages and lays the basis for half , ‘New testomony hopes and visions’, which explores a sequence of key texts.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’, so as to give you the primary biblical theology that needs to underlie our entire feel of God’s destiny for his world.
