Journal of Messianic Jewish Studies

Noting that the kingdom is already, not yet and that Jesus’ outline of what is to come only starts the biblical discussion of the end, this study traces six themes from Jesus’ teaching on the Kingdom to come. It also considers some “until” texts in Luke-Acts that show hope for Israel’s restoration. Finally there is a look at Acts 1:6-8 showing Jesus taught the hope for Israel’s restoration. The hope of the end is the hope of shalom, justice, and the vindication of the saints.
