The Fulfillment of the Davidic Covenant
MetadataShow full item record
The Davidic Covenant is a high point of the Old Testament as it sets up an expectation for a Davidic King that will rule over God's people. In addition to these promises, the Davidic Covenant anticipates the church of the New Testament to be a typological fulfillment of Old Testament promises. This work intends to reflect on the implications of the Davidic Covenant for the church. Chapters 1 and 2 explain the unique features of biblical theology. Chapter 3 details canonical features that are imperative to rightly understand biblical typology. Chapter 4 seeks to understand the Davidic Covenant in 2 Samuel 7 in light of these typological features and the canonical whole. Chapter 5 explores the Old and New Testaments for traces of these typological fulfillments. Chapter 6 provides some applications and charts a path between a covenantal and dispensational reading of the Davidic Covenant.
