Overview

The kingdom of God and the atonement are two of the most important themes in all of Scripture. Jeremy R. Treat argues that, tragically, theologians have often either set the two at odds or focused on one to the complete neglect of the other. The Crucified King reveals Scripture’s mutually enriching relationship between the kingdom and atonement, drawing from the story of Israel and culminates in the crucifixion of Christ the king. As Israel’s messiah, Christ holds together the kingdom and the cross by bringing God’s reign on earth through his atoning death. The kingdom is the ultimate goal of the cross, and the cross is the means by which the kingdom comes. Jesus’ death is not the failure of his messianic ministry, nor simply the prelude to his royal glory—it is the apex of his kingdom mission. The cross is the throne from which he rules and establishes his kingdom. Using a holistic approach that brings together the insights of biblical and systematic theology, this book demonstrates not only that the kingdom and the cross are inseparable, but how they are integrated in Scripture and theology.
