The temple has always been a source of rich scholarship and theological reflection, but what does it mean for the church’s ongoing mission in the world? G. K. Beale and Mitchell Kim examine temple theology throughout Scripture, exploring how this theme relates to Christian life and witness today. From Eden to the new Jerusalem, they argue, we are God’s temple on the earth, the firstfruits of the new creation. Now part of the ESBT series, God Dwells Among Us bridges biblical theology and the needs of the church. God has always desired to dwell among us; now the church must follow its missional call to extend the borders of God’s kingdom and take his presence to the ends of the earth. Essential Studies in Biblical Theology (ESBT), edited by Benjamin L. Gladd, explore the central or essential themes of the Bible’s grand storyline. Taking cues from Genesis 1-3, authors explore the presence of these themes throughout the entire sweep of redemption history. Written for students, church leaders, and laypeople, the ESBT offers an introduction to biblical theology.

The heart of the biblical understanding of idolatry, argues Gregory Beale, is that we take on the characteristics of what we worship.
Employing Isaiah 6 as his interpretive lens, Beale demonstrates that this understanding of idolatry permeates the whole canon, from Genesis to Revelation. Beale concludes with an application of the biblical notion of idolatry to the challenges of contemporary life.

2014 Best Missions-Oriented Biblical Study, from Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Bookstore
Just like we do today, the writers and chief actors of the Old Testament felt a deep longing for the presence of God. It is symbolized in the temple ruins, and before it the temple itself, and before that the ark of the covenant and the tabernacle that housed it, and before that the Garden of Eden.
In response to this longing, God shares his ultimate mission, in which his people play a part: the expansion of Eden, the temple of God’s presence, to all peoples throughout the earth.
The temple has always been a source of rich scholarship and theological reflection, but what does it mean for the church’s ongoing mission in the world? G. K. Beale and Mitchell Kim take temple theology off the bookshelf and bring it to our modern-day life, where the church is instructed and exhorted in its purpose. From Eden to the new Jerusalem, we are God’s temple on the earth in our day, the firstfruits of the new creation. God has always desired to dwell among us; now the church must follow its missional call to extend the borders of God’s kingdom and take his presence to the ends of the earth.
