‘The Kingdom, The Body, The Bride and The Tabernacle’ holds the mirror of God’s word up to the Church and asks, is this what Jesus died for? What if the Church isn’t what we thought it was?
LONDON, UK, – Emerging author Stephen A. Davis has spent his entire life in church; first in the pews and then behind the pulpit. It was his study of God’s word and his love for the Bride of Christ that led him to question whether what we see on Sunday reflects what’s written in scripture.
The Kingdom of God is the world as God intended. The Church is meant to be the expression of that Kingdom rule, but few of us understand what the Kingdom is. The traditions and frameworks through which we filter the Bible have bound the Bride from living as a people under the sovereign rule of King Jesus. Whilst we speak of “church” as a family, a community and a people, it functions as an event, an organisation and a building. This is because we’ve lost sight of the historical narrative that flows from Genesis through to Revelation and humanity’s place within that narrative.
When we explore that narrative, we learn how God made man to live alongside Him and rule the earth on His behalf, spreading His creativity throughout the cosmos. Man had spiritual rivals in the heavens called ‘The Divine Council’ who sought to instigate man’s rebellion and claim the Kingdom for themselves. The book explores how those rivals became the gods of the nations, how God raised up Israel to be a light to those nations, how Jesus succeeded where Israel failed and how the Good News was about the defeat of the heavenly rebels so that all nations could be reconciled to King Jesus.
“What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honour.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet.” – Psalm 8:4-6
