The Eschatology of the Old TestamentISBN: 9780875521817
In this previously unpublished material, a pioneer in reformed biblical theology examines the hopes, expectations, and understanding of Old Testament saints regarding the future. Compiled from several manuscripts relating to Geerhardus Vos's course on Old Testament eschatology, this volume weaves together the most complete text of his study on the subject.
Vos addresses a wide range of questions surrounding both individual and collective eschatology from key passages throughout the Old Testament. Whether he is discussing the intermediate state or the meaning of Sheol, Messaniac expectations or the Day of the Lord, Vos's supernaturalism contrasts with the hopelessness of naturalistic views.
