The New Covenant

The New Covenant

William J Dumbrell

$19.99

Paperback

A central theme in Dumbrell's writings has been "covenant", especially the "new covenant", in this book he examines the theme in the Synoptics, and its connection to, and fulfilment of, the Old Testament covenants. Dumbrell writes "All this means that God's in-breaking salvation through Jesus, the cross and the resurrection, provides for eventual fulfilment of the Abrahamic covenant (Luke 1:72-75), and in turn leads to the fulfilment of God's total purposes for creation. The New Covenant of Luke 22:20 was Jesus' only significant interpretation of the purpose of his death, fulfilling by his resurrection the prophetic expectations of a revived Israel. In the construction of NT theology, we must give major weight to Jesus' action, we might expect the significance of the New Covenant to control the future of the revived Israel of Acts 2.
