Theology of the covenant or theology of the kingdom? Dogmatic reflections on the relation between the covenant and the kingdom as pivotal theological themes

In this article the author attempts, with reference to the historical development of the concepts covenant and kingdom, to investigate their importance for theology in general and for dogmatics in particular, as well as to answer the question whether priority should be given to one of them in theology. He demonstrates how some theologians have developed their theology around one of the concepts – which is of course possible – but recommends that in the end a correlative approach – in which the one concept complements the other – would produce the best results for theology.
