The Pauline Eschatology

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Publisher: Princeton University Press
  • Publication Date: 1930
  • Pages: 384

Said to be Geerhardus Vos’ magnum opus, The Pauline Eschatology is the last of his works, demonstrating the fullness of his wisdom and experience in theology and exegesis. Having gone through several editions and publication cycles, this climax of Reformed scholarship brings essential Greek and Hebrew analysis to Paul’s eschatological messages. The relationship between redemptive history and Pauline theology is thoroughly established, giving way to an in-depth exploration of eschatology and resurrection.

Vos is one of the great Reformed thinkers of history. He does a great job in this book of showing from scripture how Paul viewed the ‘last days.’ Even if you don’t agree with him, you can not deny the exegesis. This is a great work, and a must have for students of eschatology.

—Isaac Curtis Johnson, pastor, Madison Heights Church

Redemptive History and Biblical Interpretation: The Shorter Writings of Geerhardus Vos

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Editor: Richard B. Gaffin, Jr.
  • Publisher: P & R Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 571

Emphasizing the historical character of biblical revelation, Vos was able to clarify the pervasive meaning of Scripture by bringing into view its basic structure. Far from an array of isolated prooftexts, the Bible was, for Vos, an organism—its rich diversity giving unaminous expression of its redemptive message. In Redemptive History and Biblical Interpretation, the shorter writings of this famed theologian have been gathered under one cover. The reader will discover here numerous major biblical and theological studies, selected addresses, and book reviews, as well as a 13-page bibliography of Vos’ writings.

An important publishing venture. . . for it makes available a large number of writings of a notable theologian which had previously been difficult to obtain. . . especially our ministers, but also all those who are interested in theology, ought to purchase this book.

—H. Hanko, Standard Bearer

There are great riches in this volume for the student of theology. All who are convinced of the importance of biblical theology and thorough-going scholarship will prize this collection.

Evangelical Presbyterian

Dr. Gaffin has made valuable articles available to people who might never have tackled one of Vos’s larger works. . . . the book belongs in theological libraries, but it might well be given to young ministers beginning their libraries, as well as general readers interested in the Reformed faith.

The Self-Disclosure of Jesus: The Modern Debate about the Messianic Consciousness

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Publisher: P & R Publishing
  • Publication Date: 1978
  • Pages: 312

Did Jesus claim to be the Messiah? What Vos discerned in his day applies equally to ours: “a certain class of writers” regards with “disfavor . . . the Messianic element in the Gospels.” His comprehensive, detailed refutation of such writers has helped Christians answer these questions affirmatively for more than 85 years.

First released in 1926, The Self-Disclosure of Jesus is among Vos’ most well-known and sought-after works, demonstrating his influence on Reformed and Presbyterian thought, and answering the questions raised by theories of the “messianic secret” and, fundamentally, the mission of Jesus.

Vos’s insights are penetrating, refreshing, and orthodox. His rebuttal of Wrede’s ‘messianic secret’ theory is prescient and, in my opinion, devastating. Besides all this, the book is a superb defense of the deity of Christ.

James T. Dennison, Jr.

The reappearance of this volume is most welcome. Vos’s treatment of the messianic identity and self-consciousness of Jesus revealed in the Gospels (though dated at points where it counteracts largely moribund errors of 100 years ago) is of enduring value.

Richard B. Gaffin, Jr., Charles Krahe Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary

This work remains an important contribution to both Gospel studies and systematic studies.

The Eschatology of the Old Testament

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Editor: James T. Dennison, Jr.
  • Publisher: P & R Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 176

In this previously unpublished material, a pioneer in Reformed biblical theology examines the hopes, expectations, and understanding of Old Testament saints regarding the future. Compiled from several manuscripts relating to Geerhardus Vos’ course on Old Testament eschatology, this volume weaves together the most complete text of his study on the subject. Vos addresses a wide range of questions surrounding both individual and collective eschatology from key passages throughout the Old Testament. Whether he is discussing the intermediate state or the meaning of Sheol, Messaniac expectations or the Day of the Lord, Vos’ supernaturalism contrasts with the hopelessness of naturalistic views.

This is one of the most helpful theological works ever written. Vos’ chapter on the Mosaic Theocracy is essential for understanding the eschatological dimension to the Old Covenant era. I cannot recommend this work enough.

—Nick Bratzig, ThM, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

Grace and Glory

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Publisher: Reformed Press
  • Publication Date: 1922
  • Pages: 155

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Taken from sermons Geerhardus Vos preached at Princeton Theological Seminary, Grace and Glory continues to prove how much modern Christian scholarship owes to his contribution over a century ago. As always, Vos draws our attention to the new covenant Jesus mediated between man and God, and through these six sermons, returns to the ultimate gift from God—which turns out to be our ultimate hope and joy.


  • The Wonderful Tree
  • Hungering and Thirsting after Righteousness
  • Seeking and Saving the Lost
  • “Rabboni”
  • The More Excellent Ministry
  • Heavenly-Mindedness
Often more respected than understood, Vos continues to fascinate and enthrall. These sermons reveal the penetrating exegetical insights of some of the most fascinating and powerful sermons ever preached. A century later, they continue to make us gasp in wonder and admiration, driving to read and then re-read these lines to behold the treasure that lies beneath the surface.

The Teaching of the Epistle to the Hebrews

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Publisher: P & R Publishing
  • Publication Date: 1974
  • Pages: 132

Containing Vos’ essential teachings on the Epistle to the Hebrews from his classroom lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary, this volume provides an excellent commentary for a Reformed understanding of the Book of Hebrews.

The Mosaic Origin of the Pentateuchal Codes

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Publisher: A. C. Armstrong and Son
  • Publication Date: 1894
  • Pages: 263

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This is the volume that brought Vos to the forefront of scholarship in his day. Originally published as his dissertation, The Mosaic Origin of the Pentateuchal Codes rebukes and refutes the then-modern scholarship of German theologians challenging the Mosaic authorship of the first five books of the Bible. Vos lays the groundwork for future scholarship in defense of Moses as the historical writer for the Pentateuch.

I do not know where a more satisfactory exhibition can be found, of what intelligent readers would wish to learn, in so small a compass.

—W. Henry Green

The Teaching of Jesus Concerning the Kingdom of God and the Church

  • Author: Geerhardus J. Vos
  • Publisher: American Tract Society
  • Publication Date: 1903
  • Pages: 203

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Taking a biblical-theological perspective on the Kingdom of God—specifically through the teachings of Jesus—Vos begins a long discussion on the relationship between Jesus’ Kingdom and the church. He establishes the “now and not-yet” concept of the Kingdom of God, a kingdom that is both eschatological and present in nature. He addresses the occurances of “Kingdom of God,” “Kingdom of Heaven,” and the Old Testament revelations of earthly and heavenly kingdoms. This is a core text for any biblical or theological study of the Kingdom of God.

As a synthesis of Jesus’ teachings upon The Kingdom it is most excellent, balanced, broad, well reasoned, really digested. It is written in full view of many conflicting opinions. But it faces them all with the fair, full strength of Christ’s well ordered Messianic schemes. It honors the Lord’s kingliness and righteousness and mercy unitedly and alike, conceiving and presenting the whole simply and in a rich unison.

The Hartford Seminary Record

[This is] Geerhardus Vos’ early work on the ‘now’ and ‘then’ double reality of the kingdom of God in Jesus’ teaching, almost two decades earlier than Ridderbos’ The Coming of the Kingdom.

Geerhardus J. Vos (1862–1949) was a Dutch-American theologian. He was the first alumnus of Calvin College (then Theological School) to earn a doctoral degree. Vos studied Old Testament at Princeton Seminary and graduated with honors. He then went on to do doctoral work in Semitics at the University of Berlin for one year, followed by two years at the University of Strasburg. He returned to teach at Calvin in 1888, but accepted an invitation to hold Princeton’s new chair of biblical theology in 1892. He held the chair until his retirement in 1932. During his time at Princeton, he taught some of the great Reformed minds of the twentieth century, including John Gresham Machen and Ned Bernard Stonehouse. Vos was also an essential catalyst in the establishment of Biblical Theology as a discipline. He passed away in 1949. Vos’ thinking and scholarship in theology has influenced Cornelius Van Til, John Murray, Richard B. Gaffin Jr., and Herman Ridderbos.

    I am translating some works of Geerhardus Vos [1862-1949] [and Herman Ridderbos - 1909-2007] from English to Portuguese here in South America [Brasil, and now in Paraguay] to evangelical/ protestant social segments and to my students in Theological Seminary and to Church. It is not enough to present these two theologians as great thinkers and theologians, etc, etc. All student of theology and scholar needs to know and perceive the function of these two theologians in history of the development of the Biblical [Reformed] Theological thought. We know that G. Vos is known as "The father of Reformed Biblical Theology", etc, etc, and together with Ridderbos they were the forerunners of the Historical Redemptive School of approach to Scriptures. But, to us, they represent much more than this; G. Vos [and Ridderbos] represent the fourth historical moment of development of the Theological [Reformed] thought. Geneva, and Calvin [1534-1564] was the first moment, with the Institutes and a Trinitarian Theology; Synod of Dort [1618-19] was the second moment, with a Trinitarian and Infralapsarian Theology [and the Institutes and Canons of Dort]. Westmisnter Assembly [1643-1649] was the third moment with a Trinitarian, Infralapsarian and Covenant Theology [and the Institutes, the Canons of Dort and the Documents of Westminster]. Princeton, US [G.Vos – 1862-1949] and Kampen, Netherlands [Ridderbos – 1909-2007] was the fourth moment of development of the Christian [Reformed] Thought with a Trinitarian, Infralapsarian, Covenantal Theology and a Historical – Redemptive Approach to the Scriptures [with all former cited theological documents and works, and the actual works of G. Vos and Ridderbos] and with a integrative approach of all these former moments and stages of Reformed Theology. One question that we need to reflect on: The work of G. Vos [The Pauline Eschatology] shows that Eschatology has prominence over Soteriology. So a Dogmatic [Systematic] Theology must be built with this consideration: Soteriology is function of Eschatology [see Pauline Eschatology of G. Vos] propose; and the center of Pauline Theology is in Historia Salutis [History of Redemption], not in the Ordo Salutis [See that many known Reformed Theologians [as R. C. Sproul, McMahon, in www.apuritansmind.com, and others] teach that the Doctrine of Justification by Faith is the center of the Paul's Theology [and of the N.T.]. When we examine the works of Ridderbos [Paul, An Outline of His Theology] and G. Vos [The Paulines Eschatology] we note that this is not true. The Doctrine of Justification by Faith is very, very important, but it is not the center of Paul Theology, nor the [hermeneutic] center of the New Testament. As G. Vos teaches [and Ridderbos]: The center of the Paul's Theology is 1. The [Vicarious] Death of Jesus [Passion] and 2. His Resurrection]; 1 Co. 15.14,15; John 16.7 [the work of the Holy Spirit himself depends on the Redemptive Work of Jesus - Passion and Resurrection]. So, the Reformed Theology and Reformed Theologians cannot change this center from the Passion and Resurrection [historia salutis] to Justification by Faith [Ordo Salutis]. Other aspect, is that nowadays, almost all Reformed Systematic Theologies were built upon the 17th Century [Reformed Ortodoxy Era] presuppositions [First: Soteriology, after: Eschatology-the last things]; and this process carry in itself the Aristotelianism from Ortodoxy [Protestant [Reformed] Scholasticism]. We don't know exactly until what extent our Systematic Reformed Theologies are committed with Aristotle Philosophy [Rejected by the Protestant Reformers [16th. century], but embraced again by the Orthodox Reformed Theologians [17th Centtury]. So, the challenge that G. Vos and Ridderbos present to us is very, very important, and it is not a challenge for only the present Reformed generation, but to the present generation and the next reformed generations. It would be good begin with the building of a Biblical Theology [genuinely biblical – continuing the work started by G. Vos and Ridderbos]; and the systematic reformed theologians think about the building of a Reformed Systematic Theology that can reflect the presuppositions of this Biblical [historical-Redemption] Theology. We can note that the theological construction presented by G. Vos take its foundations from the Hebrew Text of Scripture only, with the organic feature of the Special Revelation. So, there are not in historical redemptive process [exegeses] some influence of Aristotelianism, or etc; this is good because now we can correct some mistakes of the past [of the Protestant Reformed Ortodoxy]. It must be clear that we are not talking about changes in fundamental doctrines etc, etc, but about [considerations of] the historical redemptive exegeses [see: "Herman Ridderbos’s Redemptive-Historical Exegesis of the New Testament" by Riemer Roukema in Westminster Theological Journal, 66:2, Fall, 2004, and Resurrection and Redemption by Richard Gaffin Jr.] . Conclusion: If you are a Reformed theologian [Pastor or leader], we ask you: What Generation of Reformed Theology do you teach your church? The First generation?, [only Trinitarian Theology and Institutes]; or the Second generation? with Trinitarian and Infralapsarian? or even the third generation: Trinitarian, Infralapsarian and Covenantal Theology, with Institutes, Dort Canons, and Westminster Documents? Only this is not enough to your church; they must learn about how to build a Biblical Theology [Biblical Theology from Historical-Redemption] School. Until today, the Reformed social segments don't have an explicit Biblical Theology; in our Reformed Theological Seminaries we have in the program only: Systematic Theology; Historical Theology, etc; but the unique propose of construction of a serious and genuinely Biblical Theology [with G. Vos and Ridderbos] - a Historic - Redemption Biblical Theology, we do not have [officially adopted] in our [Reformed] Theological Seminaries. We, that teach the Holy Scriptures can change this situation and accept the challenge of G. Vos and Ridderbos. Here in South America [Brasil and now in Paraguay], I accepted this challenge, and I am slowly working on this. Other aspect that we need reflected on is about what is teaching in our Reformed seminaries and churches we can identify with a construction from a influence of the 18th Century with a strong influence of High Criticism: A Fragmentation of the Scripture; so, when the student learn about the Epistles of Paul: for example: he studies only Romans; after only Corinthians, and so forth. In the teaching of theology, generally teachers and students deal only with a "Theology of Old Testament" and after and with a Theology of New Testament separately; and so, all the Bible is studied in a fragmented model; this is a High Criticism influence. On the contrary, the Biblical Theology with historical - redemption approach [G. Vos and Ridderbos] take the study of the Scriptures as a whole and with a unifier center: The history of Redemption. Note the title of a work of G. Vos is: Biblical Theology of Old and New Testaments. Also, we can observe even some isolated studies of Covenant Theology and etc; but, actually, in the present, I do not know no development of studies that integrate all these stages [or historical developments] of Reformed Theology [Trinitarian, Infralapsarian, Covenantal Theology...] in a unique Biblical Theology. This is exactly what the Biblical Theology of historic redemption School [of G. Vos and Ridderbos] do: They begun a development of a Biblical Theology [with a historical - redemption approach] that study and approach the Scriptures as a whole and with a unique center: The History of Redemption, with its climax in the Passion [vicarious death] of Jesus and His Resurrection [in Paul’s Theology].
