“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10)
What kind of king and what kind of kingdom are we asking for when we pray this prayer Jesus taught us to pray? Nancy Guthrie’s new study, The Son of David: Seeing Jesus in the Historical Books, encourages readers to see the kingdom of God not only as it once was, but also as it is now, and as it will be one day.
Over ten weeks of guided study, relevant teaching, and group discussion, Guthrie traces the history of the people of God from the time they entered the Promised Land through a series of failed kings, exile, and finally their return to await the true King. Readers will see Jesus as:
- the greater Joshua who leads his people into rest;
- the greater Boaz who has done all that is necessary to redeem;
- the greater King who will sit on David’s throne forever;
- the greater Restorer who is building his church from ruined stones.
