Greg Beale’s Long Sentence

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.
