Possessed by God (Peterson): A NT Theology of Sanctification and Holiness (NSBT Vol. 1) / January 01, 1995
Requires Accordance 11.2 or above.
Also available in the 42-volume NSBT bundle. See list of other NSBT volumes.
In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, David Peterson challenges the common assumption that the New Testament views sanctification as primarily a process.
He argues that its emphasis falls upon sanctification as a definitive event, “God’s way of taking possession of us in Christ, setting us apart to belong to him and to fulfill his purpose for us.” Simply to identify sanctification with growth and holiness, he contends, obscures the emphasis and balance of New Testament teaching and creates unrealistic expectations.
Throughout this study Peterson builds his case on the careful exegesis of relevant passages, with a keen eye for the pastoral implications of his findings.
About the Series:
Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprised by 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.
New Studies in Biblical Theology volumes focus on three areas:
- >the nature and status of biblical theology, including its relationship to other disciplines
- the articulation and exposition of the structure of thought from a particular biblical writer or text
- the delineation of a biblical theme across the biblical corpus
While volume notes interact with the best of recent research, the text of each work avoids untransliterated Greek and Hebrew or too much specialist jargon. The volumes are written within the framework of confessional evangelicalism, but they also engage a variety of other relevant viewpoints and significant literature.
