One of the best theology books I’ve ever read was Greg Beale’s A New Testament Biblical Theology. Here’s a sentence (I know it’s really long!!) which summarizes the purpose of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. Now that’s a Jesus, I can get excited about!!
Jesus’ life, trials,
death for sinners,
and especially resurrection by the Spirit
have launched the fulfilment
of the eschatological
already-not yet new-creational reign,
bestowed by grace through faith
and resulting in worldwide commission to the faithful
to advance this new-creational reign
and resulting in judgment for the unbelieving,
unto the triune God’s glory.
