Book Information

Lynne Moss Bahr explores the concept of temporality as central to Jesus's proclamation of the Kingdom of God. Bahr uses insights from continental philosophy on the messianic, which expose the false claim that time progresses in a linear continuum, and presents these in critical dialogue with the sayings of Jesus regarding time and time's fulfillment. Bahr shows how the Kingdom is something which brings a disruption in time, one that reveals the intrinsic relation between God and humanity.

Working from this basis Bahr shows how Jesus's sayings about time are thus expressions of his messianic identity-as being of the world and yet not of the world-and suggest that the meaning of this identity is embedded in the disjuncture of time, in the impossibility of a present moment, of 'Now', but from which the Kingdom comes.
