Anthony Buzzard contends that traditional Christianity has lost its grip on the Messianism of the Bible — that Jewish theme which Gentiles found, and still find, unfamiliar. If the various denominations are to find unity in a common belief in the Bible, it will have to be by a return to the Messianic Jesus and His Kingdom Gospel. No theme could be more heartening in our distracted world than the hope of a better world coming on earth when Jesus returns to take over the reins of world government.
Subtle forces from the world of pagan philosophy have worked to make basic apostolic teachings unclear to the churchgoing public. The Bible read in its own Hebrew, Messianic context comes alive as a thrilling document inspiring hope for a resolution of all the world’s problems and offering frail humans the prospect of living not only for a thousand years, but forever.
