금년(2015)에 새로 나온 마크 보다 교수의 <내게로 돌아오라>는 책 제목에는 ‘회개의 성경신학’이란 부제가 함께 붙어있다. 저자는 캐나다 맥마스터 대학교 신학부의 구약교수이며, 이 책에서 구약의 토라, 느비임, 크투빔의 순서로 구약 각 귄의 ‘회개’ 메시지를 탐구한다. 여기서 그치지 않고 저자는 구약과 신약의 연속성을 강조하면서, 공관복음부터 계시록에 이르기 까지 성경 전체에서 회개의 의미와 중요성을 주장한다. 회개를 다른 말로 하면 하나님 앞에서 인간의 ‘죄’의 심각성을 의미한다. 이 책의 또 다른 특징은 분량도 부담이 되지 않고 (모두 198쪽), 복음주의 입장에서 성경신학에만 국한하지 않고 역사신학, 조직신학, 그리고 실천신학과 대화를 모색하는 것이다. ㄱㅈㅇ
"Return to me, says the LORD of hosts, and I will return to you," (Zech 1:3 ESV).
Repentance concerns the repair of a relationship with God disrupted by human sin. All the major phases of church history have seen diversity and controversy over the doctrine. The first of Luther’s famous ninety-five theses nailed to the church door in Wittenburg in 1517 stated that 'the entire life of believers should be one of repentance'. In recent times, two divisive debates within evangelicalism over 'lordship salvation" and "hypergrace" have had repentance at their core.
The theme of repentance is evident in almost every Old and New Testament corpus. However, it has received little sustained attention over the past half-century of scholarship, which has been largely restricted to word studies or focused on a particular text or genre. Studies of the overall theology of the Bible have typically given the theme only passing mention.
In response, Mark Boda offers a comprehensive overview of the theological witness of Scripture to the theme of repentance in this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume. The key to understanding is not simply to be found in word studies, but also in the broader meaning of texts as these communicate through a variety of words, images and stories. The importance of repentance in redemptive history is emphasized. It is fundamentally a return to intimate fellowship with the triune God, our Creator and redeemer. This relational return arises from the human heart and impacts attitudes, words and actions.
Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.
