Episode 37: Atonement Theories Part 1

May 15, 2017

In episode 37 of the Brew Theology podcast, Ryan, Dan, Alex, Brian and Adam brew up the topic, "Atonement Theories." This is Part 1 of 2 episodes. This show is brought to you by Seedstock Brewery. If you dig this episode and/or other Brew Theology shows, give this episode a share, rate Brew Theology on iTunes and give BT a brewtastic review!

So, what’s atonement? 

Maybe you’ve heard it best understood by the English, “At – ONE – ment”… meaning humanity being at “one” with the divine ONE! This is a good place to start. I’d add the original Hebrew, “Kaphar,” which is where we get the word, “atone,” literally meaning, “to cover.” This comes from the covering of Israel’s sins on the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16). Next, theories of Atonement are explanations from scholars over the past 2,000 years who have tired to explain the mystery of what happened to Jesus and this world: past, present and future on the cross!

Many Christians have been taught (Or it’s simply been infused into modern, Western Christianity through sermons and worship songs) only one popular atonement theory. Interestingly, when one does the research, we find that this popular theory wasn’t even in existence within the first 1,000 years of Christianity. Theories are sincere, speculative explanations based on subjective opinions, involving careful intelligence in academia, experience in real time, historical criticism, and a community of good 'ole fashioned “butt kickers."

In episodes 37 and 38, we cover the following:

- Ransom Captive
- Union With God
- Satisfaction
- Penal Substitution
- Christus Victor
- Moral Exemplar
- The Last Scapegoat
- God's Solidarity

Episode 30: “Barrel Aged Gospels” with Dr. Craig Blomberg

March 26, 2017

Ready for some barrel-aged theology? Ever had a drink from Matthew, Mark, Luke & John? Anyone who grew up in the Christian church was heavily influenced by the writings from these Gospels. In fact, these ancient texts have influenced civilization for two millennia. But are they reliable? How can we trust documents from 2,000 years ago that were written many decades after the life of Jesus? Remember the game of telephone as a child? Did the earliest followers of Jesus fabricate stories of a life that never existed, or were they carefully crafting stories that are highly reliable and worthy of our respect today? Distinguished New Testament theologian, Dr. Craig Blomberg* brewed up some barrel-aged goodness on Episode 30 of the Brew Theology Podcast! If you dig this episode and other Brew Theology shows, give this episode a nice 'lil share on the interwebs, rate Brew Theology on iTunes and give BT a brewtastic review!

Craig is the author of fifteen books and has co-authored or co-edited ten more, along more than 150 journal articles and chapters in multi-author works. To quote Ron Burgundy, according to the academic world, Craig is kind of a BIG DEAL!!! The Blombergs love to travel, often combining vacation and ministry opportunities at other colleges and seminaries. Craig has enjoyed three Broncos’ Super Bowl victories in his thirty-plus years in Denver, but as a native of northern Illinois his lifelong sports dream came true in 2016 when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series.
