Perhaps this depends on whom you ask.
I use to be an premillennial dispensationalist. Then I moved to the historic premillennial position. With the pre– behind me, I’m now a happy A-millennialist.
Meaning, I once read Ezekiel’s promise of the restored temple as a premillennial dispensationalist (Ezekiel 43-44).
So I’m reading N.T. Wright’s How God Became King, and he throws this curveball, if you will:
“Jesus has dramatically upstaged the Temple as the place where God now dwells. This is the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s promise of the restored Temple” (emphasis added).
And while Wright didn’t elaborate, I’ve found it rather interesting, asking myself, “Could it be?”
Rather than dismissing Wright’s interpretation as novel and therefore suspicious, it’s something I wish to explore in greater detail.
