David Gooding (1925-2019)

David Gooding (März 2008); (c) Myrthlefield Trust

David Gooding und John Lennox haben seit den frühen 90-iger Jahren durch Ihre Bücher, Seminare und Vorträge – als auch durch ihre persönliche Ausstrahlung – einen großen Einfluß auf mein Verständnis vom Umgang mit und Nachdenken über der Bibel gehabt.

Seine Bücher zum Lukas-Ev., zu Johannes 13-17, dem Hebräerbrief und der Apostelgeschichte haben eine herausragende Stellung in meiner Bibliothek gefunden …

Unvergessen sind auch Goodings Vorträge zum 4. Buch Mose auf der Glaubenskonferenz christlicher Gemeinden, in Saalfelden (28.-30.10.1994): „Die großen Rebellionen Israels in der Wüste als Warnung für unser Christenleben“; oder seine Vorträge in Rothenburg o.d.T.

Unsere Begeisterung für seine Arbeit fand seinen Niederschlag in über 20 Artikeln auf diesem Blog:

Zu Recht warben die Veranstalter in Rothenburg (2003):

David Gooding ist in vielen Ländern für seine frische und hilfreiche Auslegung biblischer Bücher bekannt. Er hat die Gabe, Zusammenhänge der Heiligen Schrift aufzuzeigen und in unsere Zeit zu übersetzen, so dass Gottes Wesen hervorscheint und zu freudiger Nachfolge motiviert.

David W. Gooding (16.9.1925 – 30.8.2019) wurde am 30. August 2019 im fast vollendeten 94. Lebensjahr heimgerufen, um bei seinem Herrn zu sein. Am Donnerstag, den 7. November, findet ein Dankgottesdienst in der Crescent Church in Belfast statt. Wer ein Zeichen der Wertschätzung senden möchte, schicke es bitte per E-Mail an info@myrtlefieldhouse.com.

  • 5. Psalmbuch: Der Messias
    „How is it that many of the psalms, and many of the other Old Testament passages, come to be a pre-figurement of the Messiah? Because the Messiah existed before they were written. The great plan of redemption that you find in that Old Testament scripture came from our blessed Lord in his pre-incarnate days. He was the Word of God, the root of David! He designed that David should be. He moved in history until David came. He sustained David and made him the very conqueror and deliverer of Israel who delivered Israel from her enemies and brought her to be one of the leading nations of the day. It was the Word of God, the second person of the Trinity, who designed David and designed his history. He designed it in such a way that, in the end, it should be a picture of a greater than David—David’s greater son—the Messiah himself.“

Nachlese zu Ostern 2017

D. Gooding:
„The Resurrection of Jesus Christ – The Rattle of Dead Men’s Bones“

Überblick

The title for this lecture is ‘The Resurrection of Jesus Christ’. The subtitle, ‘The Rattle of Dead Men’s Bones’, was deliberately chosen to echo the words of a former Bishop of Durham. Objecting to the idea that our Lord’s body was raised from the dead, he said that, if it were so, it would have been a conjuring trick with bones.

Darum Ostern

David Gooding’s task in this lecture is to determine what is meant by the term ‘resurrection’ when we talk of the resurrection of Christ. What was it that gave the early Christians the courage to preach the gospel? What has science to say about the resurrection? And what is the nature of the resurrection body?

The Definition of Christianity

Quelle: http://www.myrtlefieldhouse.com/en/collections/encounters/books/6/the-definition-of-christianity

The Bible confirms that the whole creation has a glorious destiny. The bodily ressurection of Jesus is the firstfruits of the restoration of the entire universe.

ChristianityWho gets to determine what Christianity means? Is it possible to understand its original message after centuries of tradition and conflicting ideas? Gooding and Lennox throw fresh light on these questions by tracing the Book of Acts’ historical account of the message that proved so effective in the time of Christ’s apostles. Luke’s record of its confrontations with competing philosophical and religious systems reveals Christianity’s own original and lasting definition.

The Glorious Gospel of the Blessed God

Quelle: http://www.myrtlefieldhouse.com/en/search/resource/93/resource/93/the-glorious-gospel-of-the-blessed-god

God’s character revealed in the gospel

Glorious GospelNo subject is more likely to lead Christians to worship God for the riches of his love and grace, for the magnificence of his longsuffering and mercy, and for the truth and justice of his judgments than the gospel. But perhaps no other doctrines have more deeply divided serious and sincere Christians than those contained in the gospel, particularly the age–old controversy regarding the relationship between God’s sovereignty and human responsibility.

These four seminars seek a deeper understanding of the character of God as exhibited in the gospel in order to save us from holding any views and preaching any ideas that would detract from the glory of God and misrepresent his character. Rather than presenting a fully worked out system of theology, they call attention to Scriptures that have a bearing on this general topic and touch on the honour and character of God. No matter what view we hold to in these matters, all of us should be able to agree that it will always be wise to come back to holy Scripture as it is written, to test and, if need be, modify our own views.
