Wonderful meditation on the Psalter. He rightly contrasts Plato’s Two-Worlds with Paul’s Two-Ages, but he never fully capitalizes on that brilliant insight Indeed, one fears that if Vos is occasionally pressed hard enough, he himself would opt for the Platonic reading.
Digesting Geerhardus Vos – The Pauline Eschatology | Ken Patterson –
He gives a wonderful account of forensic justification’s relation to eschatology. Also, good insights on Christ’s relation to the Spirit. Doesn’t develop any filioquist themes, but the material is certainly there. His critiques of premillennialism actually conceded the strength of the position to premils. It was hard to get excited about this. I knew he had good insights but the style was so Don’t read this as a critique of Vos’ theology.
The Pauline Eschatology
I geerhards largely in agreement. One person found this helpful. Vos can be difficult to digest, but he is geeghardus sure thing geerhardys it comes to theology. Tough sledding through much. Keep a Bible handy as he expects you to know the texts he exegetes. The essay on the eschatology of the Psalter included at the end is excellent. To take God as source and end of all that exists and happens, and to hold such a view suffused with the warmth of genuine devotion, stands not only related to theology as the fruit stands to the tree: Now, if one compares these obvious facts with the spirit in which the modern humanitarian estimates this life and the future life in their relative geerhards, it cannot be denied, that the Christian point of view is not only not always consistently maintained, but that sometimes it is openly scorned and rejected.
The taunt of the masses, who feel themselves discriminated against in the treasures and comforts of this world, is that religion seeks to reconcile them to their spoiling of the present with the promise of an illusory or at best doubtful future. The temptation is strong to overcome this prejudice through giving greater prominence to the secular advantage connected with the Christian life and promoted by Christian activity Leaving for a moment higher things out of account, it is obvious that from the Christian standpoint no greater injury can be done to the true progress and healing of eachatology in this present evil world than to make it promises and offer it remedies which have no vital connection with the hope of eternal vls.
The seminal thoughts found there Vos later elaborated on to successfully publish his plenary tour de force inwhich marked a stage of development in the theology of Pauline literature not yet known, and hitherto not yet equalled. In Scripture the rapture and renewal of the earth is subordinate to the resurrection – not preceding the resurrection, but geerhzrdus to follow on the resurrection.
In fact, our Lord and Christ explicitly stated: At issue is not just the rapture, as is misleadingly proposed by Tim LaHaye, but a much fuller climactic event.
The whole of creation is on tip-toe to see the sons of God revealed, as the inanimate creation anticipates its own renewal, following instantly upon the resurrection of all the dead.
No other Pauline work has so eschatologj delimited the patently false teaching of rapture-speculative theology. In OT times ‘eschatology’ was connected to the Hebrew word, aharit; rabbis would usually introduce geeerhardus teaching of fos messianic age with this specific word, which literally translated means ‘hindmost’ or ‘after that’.
Says Vos of the NT usage: But this easy substitution [Gk: Apart from Paul, the other NT references are: The Greek word predominantly used for “last” is the word eschatos, and for the “times” [Gk: When related to the plan and purposes of God in history, both the Hebrew and Greek terminology strongly imply that the consummation of such a plan is wholly under divine control and inevitably certain, eventuating in the great and Johannine “last day” of the Lord.
How Gedrhardus leads us up to the eternal state is, inevitably, an accomplishment identifiable of true genius. You can try and put a gloss on the rapture, but in the end the reality is unavoidable. And further, 1 Thessalonians 4: Paul denies the precedence in the particular form in which geeryardus Thessalonians imagined it. There will be no later or earlier as regards believers, no discrimination between the living and the dead as to sharing in the provisional Messianic kingdom.
All will be brought by God to be with Jesus at His coming. On the other hand we should not overlook the equally obvious fact, even with the fullest intent of accuracy, the apostle had to avail himself of a fixed medium of language, which left no room for a margin of over-literalism, and whose interpretation by others, while seemingly in full accord with the words recorded, nevertheless may introduce an ingredient of inadequacy when compared with the actual intent of Paul Sequence must be established according to their co-ordinate, or subordinate place in redemption – and not by manner of an over-literal hermeneutic, giving precedence to certain catchy words, when clearly sensationalism is not called for or indicated by proper exegesis.

This is the full Pauline conception of the resurrection, at complete odds with the rapture agenda, dschatology is hereby seen to be negligible in applying faithfully the whole counsel of God found in Scripture, leading those who essentially subscribe to a ‘gap theory’ gwerhardus to faulty teachings like, i.
