New Studies in Biblical Theology - Now and Not Yet: Theology and Mission in Ezra–Nehemiah (NSBT)

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: New Studies in Biblical Theology - Now and Not Yet: Theology and Mission in Ezra–Nehemiah (NSBT)
Publisher: Intervarsity Press (IVP) - UK
Author: Dean R Ulrich

Description

For various reasons, the books of Ezra and Nehemiah have suffered comparative neglect in Old Testament scholarship. However, as Dean Ulrich demonstrates, Ezra–Nehemiah as a literary unit is part of the Christian Bible that tells God's grand story of saving activity. It focuses not so much on how to be an effective leader but on how to be a godly participant in God's story. God may be concerned about human conduct, but the moral imperatives appear in the larger context of God's acts and promises. However exemplary Ezra and Nehemiah the men may be, Ezra–Nehemiah has an interest in how God's people contribute to building the new (and New) Jerusalem—God's redeemed community that is bigger than any single person. Mission—that is, participation in God's purpose for his world—factors into the message of these books.

In this NSBT volume, Ulrich views Ezra–Nehemiah as the record of the beginning of a new work of God among his people after the exile. This new work, which led eventually to the first coming of Jesus, enables God’s people to be restored presently ('now') in their relationship with God. Such restoration involves a combination of hope in God's promises ('not yet') and obedience to his instruction concerned with mission.

Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.


Dean R. Ulrich has earned doctorates from Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, and North-West University, South Africa. He has taught biblical studies at Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, China Reformed Theological Seminary in Taipei, and the Dalton campus of Belhaven University. He is author of From Famine to Fullness: The Gospel According to Ruth and The Antiochene Crisis and Jubilee Theology in Daniel's Seventy Sevens.
