NSBT 17: The Temple and the Church's Mission

Biblical Theology of the Dwelling Place of God.
'Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth. [...] And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem. [...] And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man.' (Revelation 21:1-3, ESV).
In this comprehensive study, G.K. Beale argues that the Old Testament tabernacle and temples were symbolically designed to point to the end-time reality that God's presence, formerly limited to the Holy of Holies, would be extended throughout the cosmos. Hence, John's vision in Revelation 21 is best understood as picturing the new heavens and earth as the eschatological temple.
Beale's stimulating exposition traces the theme of the tabernacle and temple across the Bible's story-line, illuminating many texts and closely-related themes along the way. He shows how the significance and symbolism of the temple can be better understood in the context of ancient Near Eastern assumptions, and offers new insights into the meaning of the temple in both Old and New Testaments.
'The importance of this book lies not only in the competent handling of its chosen theme, but also in its evocative unpacking of the theme of the temple [...] its modelling of the way biblical theology is to be done; and its capacity to cause readers to perceive fresh and wonderful things in the Scriptures.' - D.A. Carson
