This paper is an evaluative research essay in response to Scott W. Hahn, Kinship by Covenant.
The Davidic covenant and its fulfillment by Jesus is a key aspect which I will address, particularly regarding the temple and the reunification of the kingdom. First I will summarize Hahn’s position on these two points as found in chapter seven, “The Davidic Grant-Type Covenant” (176-213), and in chapter eight, “Davidic Covenant Fulfillment in Luke-Acts” (217-37).
In the second part of the paper, I will compare, contrast, and evaluate
Hahn’s views regarding the temple and reunification from the perspective of other scholarly approaches while also setting forth my own views regarding the fulfillment of these aspects by Jesus in Luke-Acts.
