Glory-Cloud Podcast: 010 – Treaty of the Great King

In this episode, Lee and Chris discuss Meredith Kline’s first book, Treaty of the Great King (1963).  Here, Kline deals with the ways in which the covenants which God made with Israel were like other ancient near eastern treaties.  Not only is the subject matter important and interesting in its own right, but it is helpful for tracing the development of Kline’s own thought over the course of his academic career.  Lee and Chris also spend some time on the topic of the nature and context of the law.
