Essays in Biblical Theology


Warren A. Gage 2010

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Essays in Biblical Theology explores the method set forth in Theological Poetics as developed through particular biblical characters. Following guidelines for a biblical, responsible method of typological interpretation of Scripture, this book examines the accounts of Moses, Joshua, David, Samson, and other biblical figures, showing how the depth and richness of these redemptive giants prefigure Christ, anticipating both his suffering and glory. Essays in Biblical Theology concludes with a pioneering study of the relationship between the narrative of Elijah typology and Mark’s Gospel—which unexpectedly provides an argument for the originality of the longer ending of Mark.
