Pneumatology and Eschatology in the Light of 1 Corinthians 15:45 and 2 Corinthians 3:6–18

Building upon Geerhardus Vos’s foundational essay “The Eschatological Aspect of the Pauline Conception of the Spirit” Dr. Lane Tipton develops the role of the Spirit with regard to redemptive history, the law and soteriology. Vos remarks that the core of Paul’s eschatology lies in the sphere of the Spirit. The Spirit, given to the resurrected Christ, inaugurates the eschatological age of the world to come. This world to come is realized climactically in the resurrection of Christ as the firstfruits of the one great resurrection of harvest in the Spirit.

This essay is found in Vos’ book “Redemptive History and Biblical Interpretation: The Shorter Writings of Geerhardus Vos”. Reformation Heritage Books is presently selling this at 50% of RRP.

Fantastic! Thanks for the brilliant exegesis of the biblical texts and explanation of Vos’s excellent piece.
