    1 thought on “A New Testament Biblical Theology: The Unfolding of the Old Testament in the New

    1. Christians today are blessed with a wide variety of resources for studying the Bible. In America, it seems that every few months some must-read theology book hits the press and promises to revolutionize our understanding of God’s Word. And many of these books truly are helpful. We really have no excuse for not understanding Scripture more and being more conformed into the likeness of Christ, given the endless resources meant to help us do just this.At the same time, however, this abundance of [...]

    2. Beale is a beast. Great addition to the Vos-Kline-Ridderbos tradition. I think the book as a whole is best used as a reference work, though to gain the most from it you should read it cover to cover. I will be returning to passages and parts of this book over and over again. I especially profited from his discussion on the biblical storyline, eschatological tribulation, idolatry, and the temple motifMy only complaint is that because of the work's largesse, Beale brings up controversial issues (i [...]

    3. Greg Beale's magnum opus. There are plenty of points at which one will likely disagree with Beale and the way he has constructed his project, but you have to give a little respect to a guy who writes an eleven hundred page biblical theology. Likely, this is the culmination of thirty years of his teaching. It took me a month to chew through it.

    4. Reading any of Greg Beale's books is a lifetime proposition! I am taking on this challenge because I heard him speak on the subject and promised I would give it a try. He makes the subject very intriguing. So far so good.

    5. Extremely useful book. I love this theme in every chapter: "The Story of as inaugurated End-Time New Creation". I use it to prepare my sermons.

    6. I'm currently some 200 pages deep into this magisterial study of the New Testament in relation to the Old Testament. Beale's thesis is that the Biblical storyline, from Genesis to Revelation, is an eschatological storyline: From Genesis 1, there is a forward looking in hope for a promised seed of deliverance from satanic persecution and false teachings. The Book of Daniel becomes a central Old Testament resource for the Gospel and Epistle and Apocalypse writers of the New Testament, as they reve [...]

    7. I spent almost two years working my way through this 900 plus page tour de force of Biblical theology and am sad that it has come to an end. Beale's passion for God's Glory shines through in this work which I am sure I will return to often in years to come.

    8. What a Masterpiece! It took me about 3 years to read (1000 pages) and I have forgotten almost everything I read. However, I can tell you with certainty it was really, really good. I will be consulting this book regularly in the years to come

    9. Loved looking at the Bible from a wholistic perspective. Analyzing the whole text to see the one big story was a great ride. However, at times Beale's efforts to make his point caused him to see connections between the OT and NT that seemed a stretch to me. Overall, however, a great read.

    10. Remarkable book! Beale reminds us all of his exegetical rigor and careful scholarly thought. Although I do have some concerns regarding the church/Israel, Baptism, and the Sabbath this book is a must for pastors, teachers, and students of Scripture. I will be turning to it for many years to come.

    11. Christians, especially of the studious/scholarly variety, often (and rightly) receive admonition not to treat the Bible as a mere "textbook" from which doctrines and instructions for faithful living can be mechanically "extracted." However, I am only half-joking when I say that it would probably be beneficial to the church at large if more Christians would commit to reading and applying Greg Beale's New Testament Biblical Theology in this way. It is impossible even to summarize the many valuable [...]

    12. Definitively excellent. The book to be read concerning Biblical Theology. If everyone could have access to this book, much more believers would be able to understand the coherence and the relevance of the Bible (particularly of the Old Testament). Israel would not be considered as a boring interlude between the first and the second Adam. What I really appreciated is - The tremendous quantity of biblical intextuality that Beale notice- The exposition of eschatological concepts already present in [...]

    13. This is a rather impressive work by G.K. Beale. The author offers up his proposition, a storyline of the New Testament based upon a storyline of the Old Testament. He then provides an exhaustive justification of that proposition. His primary tool for justification is the New Testament use of the Old Testament. At times his references to allusion in the Old Testament seem a bit stretched but that aside, this work is a remarkable piece of detailed scholarship that will challenge the reader to thin [...]

    14. This is definitely not an easy book. I spent more than a year 1Creading 1D it. It really has to be studied like a textbook rather than read. But it 19s definitely worth that effort. I didn 19t agree with everything in the book, but I learned from everything. More importantly, I learned a lot about the Scriptures and the Faith from my time studying the book. Well worth the time and effort.

    15. At just over 960 pages, this book is a serious undertaking. The main thrust of the book is something that I already largely affirmed, but the sheer amount of detail presented in defense of its views is astonishing. Given the amount of detail, likely no reader will agree with all of Beale's points. But it's still a fascinating, if laborious, read, and it's wonderful to see 30 years of study and reflection brought together in a single grand opus.

    16. Biblical theology at its finest. Not for the faint-hearted; nevertheless, a long, worthwhile read that will keep you turning the pages in order to see what the author might uncover next. Multiple outside sources are continuously referenced from early Jewish and Christian writers to further support the author's thesis. Do yourself a favor and spend some time with this one!

    17. I've been chipping away at this one for over two years. Finally jumped in and finished it. Very dense book and not written in the most exciting prose, this work was a challenging at times to persevere. However, the and width and depth of the content was superb. The section on Jesus as the eschatological temple was fantastic, The best I've ever seen.

    18. This is an excellent study. I have gleaned much from its study. I will continue to keep it handy for future reference.

    19. Excellent! Beale's entire volume is superb, but his chapters on how the church is true Israel were awesome.
