"Biblical Eschatology" on Tumblr

I recently went to www.tumblr.com and keyed in biblical eschatology in the search box. The following quotation from page 11 of my book, Biblical Eschatology, appeared in the top, middle column:

The profound effect of the NT on OT prophecy 
The full meaning of any particular passage or prophecy may not be clear unless the whole Bible and the stage of redemptive history are taken into consideration. Dennis Johnson makes this point clearly: “To read the Bible contextually as the Word of God must include the completed canon as the ultimate context of any particular passage.” The NT profoundly affects OT prophecy. In fact, one may say that the NT transforms OT prophecy and is the best interpreter of OT prophecy. Prophecy is an important area in which “the New [Testament] is in the Old [Testament] concealed, and the Old is in the New revealed.”

With Christmas coming, a copy of the hard copy or Kindle edition would make a great gift for the person you really care about! Enjoy!!
