    231: Atonement and Jesus’ Humanity

    231: Atonement and Jesus’ Humanity

    Is a human being sufficient to atone for the sins of humanity? In this week's episode, we explore how the New Testament authors portray Jesus as man--a member of the human race--who adequately atones for the sins of the world.

    230: Jesus’ Sonship Verified at His Resurrection

    230: Jesus’ Sonship Verified at His Resurrection

    While New Testament authors portray Jesus as the Son of God in light of his birth and baptism, the resurrection-exaltation to God's right hand confirms this Christology. This week's episode explores how two NT authors (Luke and Paul) employ "Son of God" language to highlight Jesus' resurrection and exalted status, without taking anything away from the birth and baptism emphases.

    229: Jesus’ Sonship Announced at His Baptism

    229: Jesus’ Sonship Announced at His Baptism

    Although Jesus is the Son of God in light of his begetting by the Father, the four New Testament gospels also attribute "Son of God" as a title to Jesus at his baptism. At this baptism, John the Baptist immerses Jesus in water and the Spirit descends to anoint Jesus for his royal messianic task. The voice from heaven confirms that the newly appointed Jesus is the royal Son of God. This episode examines the baptism accounts in all four NT gospels in order to better understand the significance given to this monumental act occurring at the inception of Jesus' messianic ministry.

    228: The Son of God’s Birth

    228: The Son of God’s Birth

    Having noted that New Testament authors depict Jesus as "Son of God" in distinct ways, we set out to further explore how this designation relates to Jesus' birth. In this episode, we look at how prominent New Testament authors (Matthew, Luke, Paul) portray Jesus' moment of conception in terms of him being the Son of God. We also explore the implications for the preexistence of Jesus as well as the identity of God--the one who fathered Jesus.

    227: Different Ways that Jesus is Son of God

    227: Different Ways that Jesus is Son of God

    New Testament authors regularly portray Jesus Christ as the Son of God. However, not all manners of designating Jesus with this vital description are alike. This episode introduces the various ways in which Jesus is the Son of God in the New Testament by examining the writings of Luke (Gospel of Luke and Acts of the Apostles) to see how one author seems to comfortably regard Jesus as the Son of God in three discernable ways.

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!

CBAnnB ,

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!
