The Bible is full of ironic situations in which God overturns the world's wisdom by doing the opposite of what is expected. In this new volume from respected New Testament scholar G. K. Beale, readers will see how God's pattern of divine irony is exhibited in both judgment and salvation, finding its greatest expression in Jesus's triumph over death through death on a cross. God has designed redemptive history to unfold in a way that challenges human wisdom in order to put his own wisdom and glory on display, using what is seemingly weak and foolish to show his power in the lives of his people today.
