G.K. Beale – The End Has Begun

2 Mar

All that the Old Testament foresaw would occur in the end times has begun already in the first century and continues on until the final coming of Christ. This means that the Old Testament end-time expectations of the great tribulation, God’s domination of the gentiles, deliverance of Israel from oppressors, Israel’s restoration, Israel’s resurrection, the new covenant, the promised Spirit, the new creation, the new temple, a messianic king, and the establishment of God’s kingdom have been set in motion irreversibly by Christ’s death and resurrection and the formation of the Christian church.
