    236: What is a Mediator?

    236: What is a Mediator?

    The noun "mediator" appears six times in the New Testament, most famously in 1 Tim 2:5, which depicts the human being Jesus as the mediator between the one God and humanity. Modern definitions of a mediator include a person who attempts to make people involved in a conflict come to an agreement; a moderator, a counselor. But what did "mediator" mean when these texts were written in the first century? This episode explores the Greco-Roman concept of the mediator in order to more efficiently interpret these six NT texts in their historical context.

    235: In What Way is Jesus the Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever?

    235: In What Way is Jesus the Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever?

    In Hebrews 13:8, we read that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. What exactly does it mean? Theologians on the internet are convinced that refers to Jesus' ontological immutability with the Father, according to the post-biblical creeds. This week's episode will explore this passage and seek to understand how this passage is true while still acknowledging that Jesus was born, became obedient, died, was raised, and became the high priest (which are obvious changes his Jesus' life).

    234: Is Melchizedek Jesus?

    234: Is Melchizedek Jesus?

    Who is Melchizedek, King of Salem? Some have argued that this figure from Genesis 14 is actually a pre-incarnate appearance of the Son of God. This week's episode will explore the enigmatic figure of Melchizedek by examining all of his appearances in Scripture in order to better understand his relationship with the High Priest Jesus Christ.

    233: Did Isaiah See Jesus (According to John 12)?

    233: Did Isaiah See Jesus (According to John 12)?

    In John chapter 12, two citations from Isaiah are offered to explain the rejection of Jesus' signs. Many have argued that the citations from Isaiah also prove that Isaiah saw Jesus consciously preexisting in his visions. This episode explores the two quotations from Isaiah in order to determine their function in John 12 and the manner in which Jesus' glory is portrayed therein.

    232: The Suffering Human Servant in Isaiah

    232: The Suffering Human Servant in Isaiah

    There is no denying that the New Testament authors portrayed Jesus in terms drawn from Isaiah's Suffering Servant. It is rarely asked, however, who the servant figure is according to Isaiah and how this figure came to be identified with the human Jesus. This episode explores the Isaianic Suffering Servant, its identification, and the ways in which the Gospel of Matthew incorporates these themes into its depiction of Jesus Christ--the suffering human one.

    231: Atonement and Jesus’ Humanity

FollowingYeshua ,

Such detail, nuance, and finesse! :-)

What a blessing you are to the body of Christ, Dustin! In one of your recent podcasts on how Paul quoted OT Yahweh texts of Jesus, you mentioned that "discussing these matters requires attention to detail, nuance, and finesse." I'm so grateful for the way you do just that in your teaching. If we're not careful to identify the biblical assumptions Paul wrote with, and we simply use "human logic" to draw conclusions as to what he was saying, we can easily arrive at wrong conclusions. Peter was being kind when he stated that in Paul's writings are "some things hard to understand" that readers can easily "distort" if they're not careful. Thanks for putting all the hard work you do into your teachings! You offer us so much to ponder as we seek to rightly honor the Lord in our lives and thinking!

Excellent!

I love hearing and learning the truth of YHWH’s word and will. Thank you Dustin!

Easy to Understand

Dustin’s podcast is slow and broken down in a way that’s easy to understand. I especially appreciate the recap at the end of each podcast. He’s brought up topics that I’ve never heard of before and compiles his podcasts into series so that you’re satisfied with an in-depth study. Thanks for the good work - keep it coming!
