Overview

In Jesus as the Fulfillment of the Temple in the Gospel of John, Paul M. Hoskins explores the connection between Jesus and the temple. Interpreters often associate John 1:14, 1:51, 2:18–22 and 4:20–24 with Jesus’ replacement of the temple. Based on these texts, one can already begin to see that he fulfills and replaces the temple in that he is the new locus of God’s presence, glory, revelation, and abundant provision for his people. In particular, John 2:18–22 clearly associates Jesus’ role as the Temple with his death and resurrection.

    Jesus as the Fulfillment of the Temple This book brought to life the Gospel of John for me. The eye-opening reading moment came at the beginning of chapter 2 where the author presents the Lord Jesus traveling around Israel much as the Tanernacle did hundreds of years before. From that moment on, the Gospel of John seemed to open up with a continual stream of O. T. video clips that brought Jesus' ministry alive for me as I read/studied John. For that I give the book 5 stars. But I can only recommend it with one large caveat. In spite of the book's title, it is not really about Jesus being the "fulfillment" of the Temple (which virtually all would agree with). Rather, it is about Jesus being the "replacement" of the Temple. Needless to say, there is a world of difference between these two propositions! It is a big jump from "fulfillment" to "replacement", and to pull it off Hoskins must dispose of two major hurdles put up by Christian theology in general and dispensational theology in particular. He must first dispose of the literal, earthly Millenial Kingdom, and he tries unsuccessfully to do that in chapter 2. After all, If Jesus Christ not only fulfilled the Temple but replaced it, what need is there for a literal Kingdom of Israel with her Temple in Jerusalem? Next, Hoskins must dispose of the Law/Grace contrast, and in chapter 3 he unsuccessfully tries to do that. After all, how do you replace the graceless Law with the Full of Grace, Lord Jesus Christ who? This seems incompatible to the author. Both of these theological blunders are unnecessary and show the author's lack of understanding of dispensational teachings. For this, I can only give the book 1 star. While beyond the scope of this short book review, if you would like to get an indepth explanation of dispensationalism, see my paper entitled Progressive Dispensationalism and the Distinctions of Early Dispensationalists, which can be found at the God Invites You website: godinvitesyou.com In conclusion, I recommend this book with reservations. On the one hand, it did help me appreciate the Gospel of John more. On the other, it added a layer of error and confusion in the name of scholarly novelty. So read it, but "replace" all "replacement" words with "fulfillment" or "completion" words, and you will have a wonderful study of the Gospel of John.

    The ultimate conclusion to Hoskins presentation is that Jesus is Yahweh's dwelling place where He has put His name forever. And the Jesus of today is the Corporate Christ, His body, the church the fulness of Him who fills all in all. This is the omnipresent Christ of the New Covenant.
