Call for Papers

From the opening chapters of Genesis to the final chapters of Revelation, the theme of kingship runs throughout the Bible. While it is obviously associated with God’s sovereignty over the whole of creation, human kingship has an important place in God’s purpose for humanity in the world. While the Old Testament books of Samuel and Kings give particular attention to the Davidic monarchy, the theme of king/kingdom is not restricted to these books. In the New Testament, Matthew’s Gospel underlines the importance of Jesus Christ’s identity as the ‘son of David.’ Interestingly, N. T. Wright recently stated that the theme of God becoming king on earth is a truth that ‘the past 200 years of European and American culture have been desperately trying to stifle.’ According to Wright, there is an urgent need for the Christian church to rediscover the significance and relevance of the kingdom of God, especially given its centrality in the teaching of Jesus Christ as reflected in the four Gospels.

The 2024 Biblical Theology study group provides an opportunity to explore this important topic from a variety of different perspectives. We are keen to have a range of innovative papers that will provide an opportunity for us, as a study group, to reflect upon and discuss how the concept of king/kingdom may be best approached through the discipline of Biblical Theology.

 

We welcome offers of papers from members of the Tyndale Fellowship and sympathetic non-members. We are especially keen to have papers from those who have recently completed their PhD or are in the process of doing so. In the first instance, offers of papers should be made to the Secretary of the Biblical Theology Study Group, Dr Paul Twiss at ptwiss@tms.edu.

 

Offers should be forwarded by 24 February 2024.
