The King and His Kingdom Has Come

The Drama of Scripture cover from Amazon.com

An epic poem based on The Drama of Scripture: 
Finding Our Place in the Biblical Story
By Craig G. Bartholomew and Michael W. Goheen

Act 4: The Coming of the King: Redemption Accomplished
Act 5: Spreading the News of the King:
The Mission of the Church
Act 6: The Return of the King: Redemption Completed

Act 4: The Coming of the King: Redemption Accomplished

The King and His Kingdom Has Come


The King is coming—rejoice!
Though sin has us broken at our broken choice
The King will be our Lord
His people escaping judgment and judgment’s sword
Redemption is coming and all will be made new
Transparency—He will see us through

The King is here! His Kingdom has come.
Redemption is accomplished in its sum

This is how act four has its end,
With the Alpha and the Omega declaring, “It is finished.”
And having the last word on our sin

  4. "Though sin has us broken at our broken choice"
    This line rings so true, yet if we believe, then there is hope. Nicely penned.
