A Temple Framework Of The Atonement, Adam J. Johnson Jun 2011

A Temple Framework Of The Atonement, Adam J. Johnson

Adam J. Johnson

This article builds on G. K. Beale's work on the temple, exploring the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in relation to the biblical theology of the temple. It explores the work of Christ as the one who fulfilled the role of the temple both in terms of its prophesied destruction and in terms of its rebuilding and the culmination of its purpose as the presence of God in the midst of his holy people. In conclusion, the article considers some of the practical ramifications of seeing Christ's work from this particular vantage-point.
