excellent and accessible exegetical/bibical-theological study of mystery 25. November 2014
Von Jennifer Guo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Co-written with Dr. Benjamin Gladd, who wrote his doctoral dissertation under Beale at Wheaton on the use of mystery in Daniel and Second Temple Judaism, Hidden But Now Revealed explores the biblical conception of mystery, a term found in conjunction with key doctrines such as eschatology, soteriology, relationship between Jew and Gentile, etc. in the New Testament. The authors’ goal for this book is that “the church would gain a greater appreciation for the concept of mystery and the intersection of the Old and New Testament. The gospel itself contains both ‘old’ and ‘new’ elements that stand in continuity and discontinuity with the Old Testament” (8). In this study, mystery is defined generally as “the revelation of God’s partially hidden wisdom, particularly as it concerns events occurring in the ‘latter days'” (20).

Hidden But Now Revealed begins with a look at the use of mystery in the book of Daniel, where “Revelation of a mystery can be defined roughly as God fully disclosing wisdom about end-time events that were mostly hitherto unknown” (43). The second chapter continues providing background into the New Testament’s use of mystery by analyzing the use of mystery in early Judaism, looking at a few key texts in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Targums. Like in the book of Daniel, mystery in Second Temple Judaism is eschatological and characterized by an initial hidden revelation followed by a fuller interpretation.

Having illumined the background of the use of mystery in the book of Daniel and early Judaism, Beale and Gladd devote the next eight chapters to an examination of every one of the twenty-eight occurrences of the word mystery in the New Testament. For each occurrence, the immediate NT context and the wider OT/Jewish context are both examined, concluding with an analysis of how the NT occurrence stands in both continuity and discontinuity with the OT and early Judaism.

Recognizing that studying a biblical theme isn’t as simple as just doing a word study, the penultimate chapter looks a few key NT topics that fit within the category of revealed mystery without using the term mystery – the staggered nature of the resurrection, the christological understanding of the Old Testament, Jesus as the temple, inaugurated eschatology, and the gospel itself. Finally, the last chapter compares and contrasts biblical mystery with pagan mystery religions and demonstrates that they do not have much in common and that the NT concept of mystery should be understood from the background of the OT, not pagan mystery religions.

Finally, the appendix provides a condensed version of a forthcoming paper by Beale entitled The Cognitive Peripheral Vision of Biblical Authors. Because hermeneutical presuppositions shaped this study and because it has implications on our understanding of the NT’s use of the OT, the essay is a helpful read. It argues that “Old Testament writers knew more about the topic of their speech act than only the explicit meaning they expressed about that topic. If so, there was an explicit intention and an implicit wider understanding related to that intention. It is sometimes this implicit wider intention that the New Testament authors develop instead of the Old Testament author’s explicit or direct meaning” (341).

Hidden But Now Revealed provides a robust study of an important biblical concept that’s connected to many key New Testament doctrines. It’s accessible to the serious layperson, but detailed footnotes and plentiful excursuses also provide much to think about for pastors, students, and scholars. An exegetical and biblical-theological study, this book fills a lack in the literature on the biblical concept of mystery. All with interest in biblical theology, NT use of OT, or the biblical concept of mystery would greatly enjoy this book.

Philistine 20. Dezember 2014
Von Sparky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
The book is quite scholarly and detailed, so it is not ideal as an audible. I am listening to it slowly, pausing to look up the many scriptural references. Just the tedium of listening to him read off a string of scriptural references is a drawback. There is also much material in the book in the form of footnotes and tables that are not included in the audible version. One might prefer just getting the book if one wants to delve into the material. I now own both and I am gleaning many good insights as I near completion.

The narrator does provide some amusement, as he repeatedly mispronounces several biblical terms, such as Philippians, Zephaniah, and Joshua, saying Philistines, Zephariah and Josiah instead! (He does this because he is reading the text that abbreviates the words). But hey, I am a bit of a philistine myself!

Great resource! 11. Dezember 2014
Von Jimmy R. Reagan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Are you fascinated by the concept of mystery as you encounter it in Scripture? It is important, vitally important, to understanding the big picture of Scripture itself. As I see it, mystery as a concept is the nuts and bolts of how progressive revelation works. G. K. Beale and Benjamin Gladd delve deeply into this subject in this book published by IVP, subtitled aptly “A Biblical Theology Of Mystery”. Technical enough to be the scholarly touchstone on the subject, it still is profitable for pastors to grasp how the words of God progressively came to us.

This answers difficult questions like why was Jesus so misunderstood when He talked about His Kingdom or His mission. It even affects how we, for example, read the Old Testament today–how we see things they did not see then.

They define “mystery” as “the revelation of God’s partially hidden wisdom, particularly as it concerns events occurring in the ‘latter days'”. In the Introduction the authors establish the meaning of mystery and in the first chapter discuss how Daniel’s use of mystery is truly the foundation of the concept. Before coming to the New Testament they discuss the use of “mystery” in early Judiasm. That was not as helpful to me, yet I see why they included it.

Next we have a chapter each for mystery in Matthew, Romans, 1 Corinthians, Ephesians, Colossians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, and Revelation–all the places the New Testament discusses mystery. Because of a good scriptural index, you have a lexical/commentary reference on your shelf after you read it.

It is slow to read through, at least for me, yet I doubt it will even be superseded as an authority on the use of “mystery” in the Bible. I recommend it.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

Some Of It Is A Mystery To Me 15. Dezember 2014
Von Rocky Bear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
An important key to how the authors will operate in this book is found on page 22. They state that intertextuality or inner-biblical allusion "will receive much attention in this work." This means that they are going to explore connections between different text based upon "unique wording or a unique concept or both." Of course this is good - using one text to help interpret another. They explain that some interpreters do this conservatively and are called minimalists. Others are willing to reach out and explore further. These are maximalists. Beale and Gladd are maximalists. They state that they "will draw some connections where other interpreters might not." Again on page 23 they acknowledge that "not all will agree with the probability of our connections or our interpretations of them."

Fair enough. I proceed forth to find out if I can track with them. And the concise answer is . . . it is tough - and I am apparently not a maximalist.

I do enjoy much of their teaching on the mysteries as revealed in Daniel and the New Testament. The way God has worked these mysteries and revealed them to his people is so very glorious. But through the whole book I am hedging on some of their connections. In particular, the recurrent assertion that New Testament authors were dependent on Daniel for their understanding of mystery gets old. If this argument were removed, much of the book would not exist.

Then I get to Revelation 1:20. Jesus reveals the mystery of the seven stars and the seven lampstands (candlesticks). The seven stars are the angels (messengers) of the seven churches (listed in Rev. 1:11). And the seven lampstands (candlesticks) are the seven churches. Jesus unwraps this plain and simple.

This is not at all sufficient for our authors. They teach that it has other meaning than what Jesus has clearly stated. For instance, "The interpretation reveals two distinct characteristics of the church: the angels in heaven represent the earthly church, and the seven lampstands symbolize the church on earth, which also has its existence in heaven" (pg. 262). Or, "The unveiled mystery in Revelation 1:20 not only concerns the church as the latter-day temple, but it also includes the nature of the kingdom in which the church participates" (pg. 265).

Say what? I read around these and other similar statements in the ten pages on Rev. 1:20. There is nothing to confirm them as the interpretation. When Jesus tells you patently what the interpretation is, you don't have to go to extreme means to tie it to Daniel, Zechariah or anyone else.

This is a book written by scholars and other scholars will joyfully read, quote and debate it. But I suspect typical lay Christians will soon bog down in it and thus it will be of little benefit to them.
