Biblical Theology in Outline: The Vitality of the Word of God

Front Cover
Klaus Nurnberger, 2004 - Bible - 248 pages
0 Reviews
The Bible is not a system of theological propositions but a series of witnesses to God's redemptive acts in response to need. Recurring motifs, such as the exodus, covenant or messianic king have emerged in response to need and been adapted in different situations of need. This process culminates in the Christ-event.
