  2. 2. The Kingdom of God is theUnifying Theme of the BibleThe time is fulfilled, and the kingdomof God is at hand; repent, and believethe gospel.” (Mk. 1:14-15)•Jesus used the term as if assured itwould be understood. The Kingdomof God was embedded in thevocabulary of every Jew. Page 2
  3. 3. Old Testament and New Testament View“The Kingdom of God involves the wholenotion of the rule of God over his people,and particularly the vindication of that ruleand people in glory at the end of history.”John Bright Page 3
  4. 4. Comparison of Four Systems• Dispensationalism• Covenant Theology• New Covenant• Epochal - Lasor Page 4
  5. 5. Scripture as a Record of God’s Mission 1. The Bible is the true story of the world in which we find our place and role. 2. God’s mission to redeem the world is the main story-line of the narrative that the Bible tells. 3. In the Old Testament, God chooses and forms Israel as a people with a view to bringing salvation to the whole world. 4. In Jesus, God’s purpose to restore the creation comes to a climax. Page 5
  6. 6. 5. Church taken up into God’s mission to continue the mission of Israel and Jesus.6. The already-not yet period of the kingdom is an eschatological era of the missional ingathering of the nations.7. The mission of God’s people involves a missional encounter with culture which both embraces the treasures and opposes the idolatry of all cultures. Page 6
  7. 7. Continuation of Genesis God as Creator Imago Dei: •Man is created in God’s image. Man is created immortel. •Our body dies but we do not. Man has a soul That will live forever. What is created in God’s image is the spirit (God does not have a physical body). •Man has moral attributes of God and has the ability to choose. •Man is creative. There is no limit to our capacity to create. •The concept of Dominion places man as stewards over creation. Page 7
  8. 8. Continuation of Genesis God as Creator Genesis is Divided two ways:•Chapters 1- 11 is about UniversalHistory Primary Instruction: We see both thesovereignty and transcendence of God.•Chapters 12- 50 is about God choosinga people Primary Instruction: God is always inthe redemption business. Page 8
  9. 9. Five Things We Learn In Genesis Concerning: Missio Dei 1. God is the One TRUE God. 2. God has called a people. 3. Israel is to live representing Him before the nations. 4. How Israel lives before the nations is one évidence of His authority as King. 5. He is a God of covenant and His eschatalogical promise to Abraham is Mission of rédemption is for all people. Page 9
  10. 10. Abrahamic CovenantGenesis 12:1-3, NASB “Now the LORD said to Abram, “[Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; 2 And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will ]curse.And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Page 10
  11. 11. What is the Meaning of Blessing? (Barak) Hebrew word used five times: •Denotes fruitfulness and the capacity to multiply. •The Blessing is set in the context of relationship both vertical and horizontal. Page 11
  12. 12. Vertical and Horizontal Blessing Vertical: Horizontal:They know God is The relational elementblessing them and of the blessingthey seek to live in reaches out to thosefaithful relationship around.with their God. * Laban is enriched by God’s blessing on Jacob (30:27-30). *Potiphar is blessed through the presence of Joseph (39:5). *Pharaoh is blessed by Jacob (47:7, 10) Page 12
  13. 13. Galatians 3:5-9, NASB“So then, does He who provides you with theSpirit and works miracles among you, do it by theworks of the Law, or by hearing with faith?Even so Abraham BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WASRECKONED TO HIM ASRIGHTEOUSNESS. Therefore, be sure that it isthose who are of faith who are sons ofAbraham. The Scripture, foreseeing thatGod would justify the Gentiles by faith, preachedthe gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “ ALLTHE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU.” Sothen those who are of faith are blessedwith Abraham, the believer.” Page 13
  14. 14. The Kingdom is Not Filled with Slaves but instead Sons “Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “ Abba! Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.” Galatians 4:6-7, NASB Page 14
  15. 15. Sin as Covenant Rebellion Salvation is Key Page 15
  16. 16. Covenant Rebellion to Idolatry“If human beings are inescapably religious,driven always to seek an object of worship, thenthe fall cannot be characterised solely as revoltagainst the rightful Lord: It must be describedfurther as exchange of religious allegiance.”(Chaplin) Page 16
  17. 17. Exodus: Formation of a People  By mighty act of redemption (1- 18)  By covenant (19-24)  By His presence (25-40) “Exodus is not a literary or theological goulash. It did not come together haphazardly or without a guiding purpose, or with no unified concept to hold it together.” (Durham) Page 17
  18. 18. Redemption Redeemer is one who liberates family member who has fallen into bondage Israel bound to Pharaoh in covenant? Living under authority of Pharaoh was religious Liberation to serve God in all of life Page 18
  19. 19. Liberated to serve God alone‘In the Exodus, the power of the suzerain is broken; the pharaoh, the god-king of Egypt, was defeated and therefore lost his right to be Israel’s suzerain lord; the Lord conquered the pharaoh and therefore ruled as King over Israel (Exod. 15:18). As their deliverer, God had claimed the right to call for his people’s obedient commitment to him in the covenant’ (Craigie). Page 19

I am Yahweh” (Exodus 12:12). Page 23
  24. 24. Exodus is a Setup For A Kingdom of the Redeemed The Exodus is a holistic model of Political, economic, and spiritual redemption. Our Mission is to show the same broad concern that God has for humanity. (Bayside Church – Unleashing Compassion) To Respond to God’s Redemption is to: Obey the Calling to Imitate God To release slaves Generosity Forgiveness and debts “transgressions” Reliant on God’s Capacity (the Cross is Central) Page 24
