    The quest for an evangelical biblical theology begins with the presupposition that the biblical literature and its historical storyline together provide the vehicle for God's revelation of himself and his purposes for creation.

    I believe that it is at the heart of evangelical hermeneutics and is absolutely indispensible in expository preaching.

  • michael shared from Living in God's Two Kingdoms: A Biblical Vision for Christianity and Culture by David VanDrunen
    The first Adam did not bear God’s image in order to work aimlessly in the original creation but to finish his work in this world and then to enter a new creation and to sit down enthroned in a royal rest.

    Christians must understand their responsibilities in human culture within the context of this bigger story. Redemption is not about regaining the original creation but gaining the new creation by the work of Christ alone. Christians’ cultural activities should not be construed as picking up Adam’s original task.
    Note: Christians need to understand Adam's original task is not your job to redeem everything around you.
