Item Description...
We need to know who Jesus is. But where can we turn to find out? Many people look only to the New Testament for answers. But reader of The Servant King will find that the Old Testament, beginning with its very first pages, paints a portrait of the Messiah, the Saviour of the world: where he will come from, what he will be like and what he will do. By the time we reach the New Testament, much of the portrait has emerged, so that the Jesus we encounter is not a stranger. We are able to see, like the first disciples, that he is the Messiah already promised, the Servant King. With great skill, Desmond Alexander helps us see the portrait's first brush-strokes being laid down in Genesis and more being added as the Old Testament story unfolds. Then, as he guides us through the New Testament, we discover how the portrait is completed revealing Jesus in all his glory. This book brings the whole picture into view. It helps us see who Jesus was, where he stood in the plans of God and what he was sent to do. If we read with care and faith, The Servant King will help us enter the richness of God's Word, and we will understand better, not just who Jesus was, but who he is today. "The Servant King is written with the sort of authority only a leading Old Testament specialist can command; but its deep learning is not allowed to intrude and the book has all the charm and helpfulness of a piece of enthusiastic Bible study, presented with freshness and accuracy." -Alec Motyer, Trinity College, Bristol T. D. Alexander (PhD, Queen's University, Belfast) is director of the Magee Institute for Christian Training at Union Theological College in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He is also the author of Paradise to the Promised Land.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
King Jesus  Jun 19, 2007
T.D. Alexander has written a very helpful little book (168 pp) called 'The Servant King' which traces the development of the portrait of the Messiah through the Old and New Testaments. He begins in Genesis 3 where God promises that he will bruise the serpent's head through the woman's seed. He traces the seed (family line) through Genesis. Adam starts as God's image (representative who is to have dominion) tracing through to Seth, to Noah (a new Adam) to Abraham to Judah to Perez. The book of Genesis anticipates a future king from the line of Judah, establishing a monarchy through whom the nations will be blessed. God is faithful to preserve this seed, the royal dynasty which come to fulfillment partially in David, the son of Jesse. The promise of a Davidic dynasty runs through the rest of the Old Testament. There is much anticipation, as Israel awaits the righteous king through whom God will bless the nations. It is incredibly significant that the book of Matthew begins with "The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham." Genealogies are incredibly significant. Matthew seeks to show that this Christ (not Jesus' last name, but 'Anointed One') is the king that Israel has been waiting for, the last Adam and true seed of Abraham and David's greater Son. The kingdom of God has arrived in the person of Jesus! All authority has been given to him, and we owe him our allegiance. What a beautiful picture. Alexander's book is simple, but filled with biblical insight.

For additional studies in Biblical Theology, see Goldsworthy's 'Gospel and Kingdom', Roberts' 'God's Big Picture', Goheen's 'The Drama of Scripture', and Dempster's 'Dominion and Dynasty.
