The aim of this book is no less than to provide an account of the unfolding of the mind of God in history, through the successive agents of his special revelation. Vos handles this under three main divisions: the Mosaic epoch of revelation, the prophetic epoch of revelation, and the New Testament. Such an historical approach is not meant to supplant the work of the systematic theologian; nevertheless, the Christian gospel is inextricably bound up with history, and the biblical theologian thus seeks to highlight the uniqueness of each biblical document in that succession. Geerhardus Vos was invited to teach biblical theology at Princeton Seminary in 1893. He remained there until his retirement in 1932, and he died in 1949.
These valuable pages contain the ripe fruit of the 39 years which Vos spent teaching Biblical Theology at Princeton, until his retirement in 1932.
