The New Testament in Seven Sentences : A Small Introduction to a Vast Topic

Description

We often explore individual passages of Scripture without seeing the whole. A verse may be inspiring and easy to grasp, but the sweeping context is often difficult and requires persistence. To understand the breadth of the gospel's message, we need to perceive the full tapestry of Scripture with its theological themes woven together. Otherwise, we miss the scope of what Jesus is doing in the New Testament, gaining mere glimpses of his activity or teaching but missing their significance. Gary M. Burge aims to weave this larger tapestry so that each part of the story takes on richer meaning. Using seven key sentences drawn straight from the New Testament, Burge demonstrates how the themes of fulfillment, kingdom, cross, grace, covenant, spirit, and completion set a theological rhythm for our faith. The seven include "You are the Messiah, the son of the living God!""By grace you have been saved, through faith ... not by works.""You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession.""I saw a new heaven and a new earth."These sentences are not only individually inspiring, but they outline the broader pattern of Scripture that illustrates what God has done--and is bringing to fulfillment--in Christ.
