Sample text

63 I contend that the goal of the NT storyline is God’s glory, and that the main stepping-stone to that goal is Christ’s establishment of an eschatological new-creational kingdom and its expansion. The main focus of this book is on the development of this new-creational kingdom and its spread as the penultimate means to divine glory. Others have argued well that the glory of God is the final goal of Scripture,64 so I concentrate my efforts here on the major instrumentation that accomplishes that goal.

The inductive basis for the formulation of this statement is found in chapters€2–3. The NT transformation of the storyline of the OT that I propose is this: Jesus’s life, trials, death for sinners, and especially resurrection by the Spirit have launched the fulfillment 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.

See Scott€J. Hafemann, “‘The Righteousness of God’: An Introduction to the Theological and Historical Foundation of Peter Stuhlmacher’s Biblical Theology of the New Testament,” in Stuhlmacher, How to Do Biblical Theology, xv–xli. Hafemann shows that Stuhlmacher saw that the central notion of the OT and especially of the NT is the righteousness of God and justification, and that the NT develops this idea from the OT. Hübner’s work also emphasizes justification in the NT (on which, see Stuhlmacher, How to Do Biblical Theology,€79).
