Example text

3:1-2). This is a redemptive reign in that they (and we today) are priests and kings: “Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years” (Rev. 20:6). John informs his original audience early in Revelation that Christ “has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father” (1:6). Peter tells the first-century Christians (and us): “You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (1 Peter 2:9).

But since Israel was unfaithful to her calling and failed to fulfill the purposes of her divine election, the Lord brought forth his Elect One, his Servant, his true Israel. ” Some critics consider this to be a completely arbitrary and baseless allegorical exegesis on Matthew’s part, that Matthew takes a reference which in Hosea is clearly a reference to the nation Israel (and it is, of course; read the context in Hos. 11) and applies that text to Christ. That is obviously a totally fanciful use of that Scripture, says the critic.

3:17), the resurrection and ascension (as Gentry has noted), but also the Second Coming. Revelation 19:15 describes our Lord’s smiting the nations at his return and proceeding to rule them with an iron rod. Paul’s description of the Second Coming in 2 Thessalonians 1:6-12 reinforces this image. Matthew 25:31-46 also presents Christ as ruling and judging the nations from an enthroned position after his return. These texts see the final fulfillment of Psalm 2’s regal language in a kingdom that ensues from that Second Coming.
