    Jesus as the Fulfillment of the Temple

    This book brought to life the Gospel of John for me. The eye-opening reading moment came at the beginning of chapter 2 where the author presents the Lord Jesus traveling around Israel much as the Tanernacle did hundreds of years before. From that moment on, the Gospel of John seemed to open up with a continual stream of O. T. Video clips that brought Jesus' ministry alive for me as I read/studied.John.

    But I can only recommend it with one large caveat. In spite of the book's title, it is not about Jesus being the "fulfillment" of the Temple (which virtually all would agree with). Rather, it is about Jesus being the "replacement" of the Temple. Needless to say, there is a world of difference between these two propositions!

    it is a big jump from "fulfillment" to "replacement", and to pull it off Hoskins must dispose of two major hurdles put up by Christian theology in general and dispensational theology in particular. He must first dispose of the literal, earthly Millenial Kingdom, and he tries to do just that in chapter 2. After all, If Jesus Christ not only fulfilled the Temple but replaced it, what need is there for a literal Kingdom of Israel with her Temple in Jerusalem?

    Next, Hoskins must dispose of the Law/Grace contrast, aheron chapter 3 he tries to do just that. after all, how do you replace the graceless Law with thr Lord Jesus Christ who is full of Grace? This seems incompatible to the author.

    Both of these theological blunders are unnecessary and show the author's lack of understanding of dispensational teachings. While beyond the scope of this short book review, if you would like to get an indepth explanation of dispensationalism, see my paper entitled Progressive Dispensationalism and the Distinct, which can be found at the God Invites You website: godinvitesyou.com

    In conclusion, I recommend this book with reservations. On the one hand, it did help me appreciate the Gospel of John more. On the other, it added a layer of error and confusion in the name of scholarly originality. So read it, but I suggest "replacing" all "replacement" words with "fulfillment" words.
