From The Bible and the Future by Anthony A. Hoekema: "At the very beginning, there was an expectation of a coming redeemer, who would bruise or crush the head of the serpent. As time went on, there was a growing enrichment of eschatological expectation...we may certainly say that at various times the Old Testament believer looked for the following eschatological realities in the future:
  1. the coming redeemer
  2. the kingdom of God
  3. the new covenant
  4. the restoration of Israel
  5. the outpouring of the Spirit
  6. the day of the Lord
  7. the new heavens and the new earth
all these things loomed on the horizon of expectation." (11-12)
