Additional info for Betrayed
They form the clearest example in the New Testament of ‘realized eschatology’, a notion to which we shall return in our treatment of twentieth-century Christian theology (pp. 133–5 below). ‘Eternal life’ or just ‘life’ is perhaps the main theme of John’s Gospel. ‘I came that they may have life, and have it more abundantly’ (10: 10). This abundant life is eternal life. ‘Eternal’ life, therefore, is chieﬂy a qualitative term, characterizing the kind of life enjoyed by the believer. ’ The ‘realized’ nature of this eschatology is brought out speciﬁcally in relation to the theme of judgement.
Moreover, the messianic hope of Israel, for all its variety and speculative extravagance, did provide the materials out of which a way of interpreting the saving events of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection could be fashioned. But it is widely felt that the story is also a story of decline. The prophets’ insight into God’s moral government of human history, his sovereign freedom in both judgement and grace, seems to have faded away. One has only to compare Deutero-Isaiah with Daniel 7–8 to realize that the profound insights into the meaning of redemptive suffering and into Israel’s vocation as a light to the nations have not fully been maintained.
Moreover, Paul’s emphasis on justiﬁcation and the spirit-ﬁlled life in Christ means that no special problem need arise for his theology and ethics from the Parousia’s delay. The Synoptic Gospels We have already used the ﬁrst three Gospels in our attempt to reconstruct the eschatological preaching of Jesus himself. We return to them now for what they have to show us of the Christian hope as it was at the times of their compilation—somewhat later than Paul’s letters, but probably between the sixties and eighties of the ﬁrst century.
