The Gospel According to Isaiah, Part 2


With Genesis 1-3, there is the widest end of the funnel: the whole human race is represented in Adam. Then after the fall, God issues his promise of the Savior of the world, but the church formed by this gospel promise is a small remnant: the line of Seth, rather than the line of Cain. Later, God calls Abram and promises him that he will be the father of many nations and in his seed all the families of the earth will be blessed, and as Paul points out he said one seed, Jesus Christ. So although the promised future blessing is worldwide, the carriers of the promise—the covenant community—is constantly being pruned to a remnant.

Heilsgeschichte

The term, a German word, literally meaning "salvation-history", was coined in the eighteenth century and used in the nineteenth century by certain theologians who rejected Schleiermacher's attempt to rest theology upon religious feeling and emphasized the primacy of the biblical historical revelation. One way that this term is used today is to insist that the total history of revelation and salvation is connected with real events in actual history, of which Christ is both the center and the culmination. From all the variety of the New Testament elements there emerges one picture of the Christ-event from pre-existence to parousia. This view does not make the Christian religion dependent upon the vicissitudes of historical research; it is faith in Christ which makes sense of the witness of the biblical records, and faith is essential to the right understanding of their historical content. The stress is upon the acts of God in history.
