Review: From Creation to New Creation edited by Gurtner and Gladd

From Creation to New CreationG. K. Beale has had a significant impact on students, pastors and scholars throughout his scholarly career. Despite already releasing influential works such as his “magesterial” commentary on Revelation (NIGNT), the rich and “paradigm shiftingThe Temple and the Church’s Mission, the “indispensable Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament (co-edited with Carson), and his “magnum opus” (1,000+ pg) A New Testament Biblical Theology, I’d argue that Beale is currently at his prime. However, in light of the Lord’s work through him, Daniel Gurtner and Benjamin Gladd have worked together to produce From Creation to New Creation, a collection of essays in honour of Beale.

Getting back to the question, Benjamin Gladd, professor at Reformed Theological Seminary, would answer “yes”; in in fact, in From Creation to New Creation Gladd goes even further and says that Paul consciously himself “as a Danielic figure…someone who wades in the stream of Danielic behaviour” (p272-3). As in, Paul saw himself much like Daniel and hinted at it in his letters.

Why Jesus Wasn’t Wrong about Abiathar (Mark 2:23-28)

From Creation to New CreationJesus’ statements are regularly controversial. This is unsurprising since He is often challenging, divisive, surprising, and always profound. When it comes to Mark 2:23-28, His words are exceptionally controversial because here He appears to be wrong. When recounting the story of David eating the showbread, Jesus refers to Abiathar being the high priest, when in fact it was actually his father Ahimelech (1 Sam 21).
