Ridderbos: The Great Future Has Become Present

The whole of Paul's preaching is determined by the all-important fact that in Christ's advent and work, especially in his death and resurrection, the divine work of redemption in history has reached its fulfillment and the redemptive dispensation of the great future promised by God and foretold by prophecy has become present time.

--H. Ridderbos, Paul: An Outline of His Theology, 487
