Hidden Tradition of the Kingdom of God by Margaret Barker

Book Description

Based on four lectures she is currently given, this book is in the tradition of Margaret Barker's "Temple Theology" (sold 2202) - smaller and more accessible than her series of mighty tomes. Subjects covered include the Jerusalem temple, the Enoch traditions (the role of theosis - the human becoming divine - which is central to Orthodox theology, the original meaning of the Son of God and the role of Knowledge/wisdom in all this); the High Priesthood (including Melchizedek, and Jesus as Melchizedek in "Hebrews", as the resurrected priest, the bringer of the Kingdom, as in the "Dead Sea Scrolls"); the "Revelation" - the coming of the Kingdom and how these pre-Christian visions inspired Jesus' own preaching of the Kingdom. Lastly, there is a chapter on what the Church did with the idea of the Kingdom and what it means now, including environmental significance.
