Rev. Dr. N. T. Wright is Research Professor Emeritus of New Testament and Early Christianity at St Mary’s College in the University of St Andrews and Senior Research Fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. His work has established him as the foremost voice among New Testament scholars of the present generation, not least due to his many commentaries, topical studies, and the multi-volume, Christian Origins and the Question of God. Is Jesus’ parable of Luke 19:11-27 teaching that the kingdom of God is going to be delayed indefinitely or that it is arriving at that moment with Jesus’ descent upon Jerusalem? Verse 44 of the same chapter and Jeremiah’s use of a key Greek word, among other things, ominously suggests the latter.
