A Door of Hope: Biblical-Theological Reflections On the Kingdom of God in the Book of the Twelve
MetadataShow full item record
The twelve Minor Prophets are to be read as a compositional unity known as the Book of the Twelve as demonstrated by biblical intertextuality, intertestamental literature, and church history. Reading the Twelve as a compositional unity sets the biblical-theological stage for examining how the Twelve advances the theme of the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God in the Twelve is examined through the lens of four kingdom sub-themes: Davidic kingship, exile and second exodus, covenant, and the day of the Lord. After investigating each sub-theme within the Twelve, New Testament citations of the Twelve is explored, seeking to ascertain how the authors read, interpreted, and applied the kingdom of God in the Twelve to their literary context.
