WELCOME TO CONSUMMATION MINISTRIES
May the God of Creation and Redemption fill your heart with ecstasy as you experience more and more of the consummate unity of the Christ with his people. All blessings to you in Christ,
O. Palmer Robertson, ThM, ThD
The The vision of Consummation Ministries is best summarized by its motto: All God’s Word for All God’s World Consummating in Christ. Paul writes that all Scripture is God-breathed so that the man of God may be perfected, fully equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16). A most fruitful way for grasping the whole of Scripture involves seeing the whole from the perspective of its organic growth across redemptive history. In addition, to view the whole of Scripture consummating in the person and work of Jesus Christ provides fresh stimulation for a healthy growth in the faith that saves and transforms.
Consummation Ministries is designed to search the whole of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation in terms of this progressive unfolding of the glorious redemption prophesied and fulfilled in Jesus Christ. This redemption is best perceived in its world-wide dimensions by exploring its far-reaching implications for the whole of God’s creation.
Drawing on the rich tradition of biblical exposition demonstrated in the work of Christ’s godly servants such as John Calvin, B. B. Warfield, J. Gresham Machen, and Geerhardus Vos, Consummation Ministries commits itself to ‘follow in their train’. By searching the Scriptures afresh from the perspective of redemptive history, it is our prayer that the Church of Jesus Christ may experience the blessing of new insights into the totality of scriptural revelation with contemporary relevance which shall create a living hope with regard to expectations of the future.
In the context of biblical theology, the consummation means the final completion and ultimate end of all things marked by the return of Jesus Christ and the full realization of the Kingdom of God.
This ministry of seeking to promote the truth of Christ will be expressed through various mediums:
Through the written word – the writing and publication of books, pamphlets and articles
Through the spoken word – the preaching and teaching of sermons and lectures in churches, in seminaries and in conferences
Through audio-visual means – recordings of sermons and lectures available on the website
Through interaction with visitors – website vistors responding to thought-provoking queries
The shape of the logo is taken from the core diagram in Palmer Robertson’s book ‘The Christ of the Covenants’ illustrating the covenantal structure of Scripture.
The radiating curved sectors each represent a covenant that God made with man: first with Adam, then Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and finally the New Covenant in Christ.
The dotted lines paralleling the outside V represent the Old Covenant shadows, and the solid lines represent the consummation in Christ, the fulfilment of all things.
Dr. Robertson resides in Winston-Salem, NC. His ongoing writing ministry is conducted mainly from home, but he occasionally visits Biblical and Theological libraries in the USA, and also does research at Tyndale House in Cambridge, England from time to time.
