Description de l’éditeur
The Old Testament was written in Hebrew to those who were culturally Hebrews and ancient Hebrew culture was very different to our culture today. The Hebrews were a people for whom fatherhood and sonship were of primary importance.
In Genesis, Abraham was described as a Hebrew and God chose Abraham out of his own father’s house for him and his heir to receive from God a father’s blessing and for this to be a blessing for all the families of the earth. What was important to Abraham was important to God but with an eternal significance of mind-boggling proportions. God chose, blessed and anointed men like Abraham and King David so that one day God Himself would be born as the man Jesus who would establish the blessing of God’s fatherhood for all – sons and daughters, the old and the young, the rich and the poor – indeed everyone. Just as wise miners prospecting for gold dig where gold can be found, an understanding of the cultural framework of the people about whom the Bible was originally written has a value of incalculable worth for those receiving within their hearts Jesus, the gold of God’s glory.
This book does not look back through the pages and spectacle of biblical history with the lenses of our modern culture and orthodox theological tradition. Instead it stands with Abraham and looks forward in clear sight to understand God’s eternal purpose as he understood it. It explains the teachings found in Hebrews, John First Letter, Galatians, Ephesians, Colossians and extracts from Acts and John’s Gospel from an ancient Hebraic cultural perspective. This book will enable you to receive the crown of anointing that reunites within your own life God’s Word with his Holy Spirit to empower you to overcome in life and to ultimately obtain the fulfilment of God’s amazing purpose for you. It will show you that you yourself can become a son of God together with Jesus and through the presence of God’s indwelling fatherhood become the reflection and visible image of the invisible God just as He is. Through that and together with Jesus will you be qualified to eternally inherit all things.
