Description

In the Old Testament, hope is focused almost entirely on the secure possession of the Promised Land, with little mention of a personal resurrection. In the New Testament, hope is focused very much on a personal resurrection, with little interest in the Promised Land. Are the Old and New Testaments from two different thought worlds, or are they part of a theological continuum that was taking place within Judaism? This book argues that the doctrine of the resurrection was a natural development within the growing uncertainty regarding the Promised Land.
