Kingdom? Cross? Reading the gospels better (NT Wright)

Russell Minick Leave a Comment

Brilliant discussion of gospel meaning.  The concern is the CENTRAL STORY of the New Testament, specifically Matthew/Mark/Luke/John and the peculiar ability to miss the point, even among people who are VERY vocal about believing the Bible.

Key explanation is how we develop a particular taxonomy (list of categories which matter) over and against what a natural reading gives.

‘how God became King on earth as he is in heaven’

Great figure 8 around the poles of cross and kingdom (in my opinion)
