Abandonment – Who, How, Why: A Case For A Multifaceted Understanding Of Jesus’ Cry From The Cross In Mark 15:34, G. Dan Harris Jan 2012

Abandonment – Who, How, Why: A Case For A Multifaceted Understanding Of Jesus’ Cry From The Cross In Mark 15:34, G. Dan Harris

G. Dan Harris

The view of Christ bearing our sins on the cross is a necessary component of various atonement theories that exist. Within these atonement theories there exists a need for God’s justice. Therefore, as Christ took these sins of mankind upon Himself, part of the experience that His humanity dealt with was genuine separation. This was not necessarily because the Father somehow had to “look away”; it was rather because mankind’s sins have created a real separation from God and a genuine experience of abandonment. Thus, Christ experienced the abandonment (separation from God) in our place and because of ...

Ellen G. White’S Life Of Christ: An Episode In The History Of Early Adventist Translation Work, Denis Kaiser

Denis Kaiser

In the late 1880s and early 1890s a book on the life of Jesus Christ was published in various foreign languages in Europe and North America. Ellen G. White was given as the author of the book.

Johannine Christianity: Jewish Christianity?, James F. Mcgrath Feb 2009

Johannine Christianity: Jewish Christianity?, James F. Mcgrath

James F. McGrath

Since the publication of J. Louis Martyn's Decisive Study, History and Theology in the in the Fourth Gospel (1979), there has been a growing consensus among Johannine scholars that the Gospel of John was composed in the context of conflict with the synagogue, and that it is thus best understood and interpreted against the background of Judaism and Jewish Christianity'. However, several recent studies have sought to challenge this position, primarily on two fronts: Johannine Christology (Casey 1991 :23-38) and the Johannine attitude towards the Torah (Schnelle 1992:31-36). These recent challenges to the growing consensus have also pointed ...
