Him We Proclaim: Defining Apostolic Homiletics (Part 3)
Dennis E. Johnson

Apostolic homiletics does not assume that every text testifies to Christ in the same way.

Rather, apostolic homiletics exhibits various ways in which the Old Testament’s diverse genres and texts diagnosed humanity’s need for restoration to true knowledge, reconciliation for holy communion, and rescue and rule in righteousness. And apostolic homiletics show the various ways in which the coming of the supreme Prophet, Priest, and King was anticipated, promised, and foreshadowed in the era of promise.

Apostolic homiletics is not a Trinity-ignoring Christomonism.

Rather, apostolic homiletics is robustly Trinitarian: its focus on Christ as the divine executor of the Father’s creational purpose and as the divine-human mediator of the covenant of grace increases our appreciation for the engagement of the Father and the Spirit in the great works of creation, providence, and redemption.
