Joel McDurmonʼs work is original. He goes where few commentators have gone before. As he shows in page after page of tightly argued points, there is a unity to the prophetic message of the gospels and the rest of the New Testament. Itʼs about new wine in new wine skins. Everything about the old covenant was planned obsolescence. Jesus was always in view, from the first promise of a savior in Genesis 3:15 to the revelation that “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” in Revelation 19:10. So much of modern-day prophecy commentary is an attempt to rebuild what was never meant to be rebuilt. The parables, as Joel makes abundantly clear, serve to show that the breaking down of the dividing wall was on the horizon for them and the world with the result that there would be “one new man” in Christ (Eph. 2:11–22). The destruction of Jerusalem and the dismantling of the templeʼs stones were a foregone conclusion because Jesus had always been the reality over the shadow (John 2:19). – From the Foreword by Gary DeMar
