109: ‘Son of Man’ Christology in the Gospel of John (Part 2)

109: ‘Son of Man’ Christology in the Gospel of John (Part 2)

February 27, 2020

As we continue our exploration into the Fourth Gospel's depiction of Jesus as the Son of Man, we observe that this human being is to be the object of a believer's faith. We also note that the Son of Man is authorized to exercise divine prerogatives, specifically, to give eternal life and to execute judgment.

108: Introducing ‘Son of Man’ Christology in the Gospel of John

February 20, 2020

The Gospel of John has many 'Son of Man' sayings that are not located in the previous three Gospels.

107: Luke’s ‘Son of Man’ Christology

February 13, 2020

In this episode, we explore the Gospel of Luke and its understanding of Jesus' favorite self-reference, the Son of Man. In doing so, we discuss passages where Jesus is the human representative of the suffering people of God, both past and present, as well as depictions of the Son of Man as 'Wisdom' and as the mortal one who died and rose.

106: A Further Look at Matthew’s ‘Son of Man’ Christology

106: A Further Look at Matthew’s ‘Son of Man’ Christology

February 6, 2020

As we continue our study through the Gospel of Matthew to better understand the Christological significance of Jesus' favorite self-reference "the Son of Man," we encounter passages where the Son of Man possesses authority over the angels, the right to rule as a king, and the role of judge. We also find that Jesus calls other human beings his "brothers"-- further indicating that the Son of Man is an authentic member of the human race.

105: An Introduction to Matthew’s ‘Son of Man’ Christology

105: An Introduction to Matthew’s ‘Son of Man’ Christology

January 30, 2020

The Gospel of Matthew has additional sayings about the Son of Man that are absent from the Gospel of Mark. In this episode, we begin to explore these sayings in Matthew, where the Son of Man is a rejected figure, a figure who "comes," one who speaks in terms of Lady Wisdom, and who is greater than Jonah and Solomon. However, Matthew appears to frame this Christology in terms of Jesus as a high ranking human Messiah.

104: The Trial of the ‘Son of Man’ in Mark

104: The Trial of the ‘Son of Man’ in Mark

January 23, 2020

In the final 'Son of Man' story within the Gospel of Mark, Jesus stands before the High Priest in a trial regarding Jesus' temple actions and claims to being the Messiah. The messianic secret is finally revealed to Israel's leadership, but Jesus' claim to being the human Son of Man possessing authority from God results in being sentenced to death.

103: The Predicted Death of Mark’s ‘Son of Man’

103: The Predicted Death of Mark’s ‘Son of Man’

January 16, 2020

In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus says that the demise of the Son of Man is predicted in Scripture. However, there are no explicit passages within the Hebrew Bible that talk about the suffering and death of a 'son of man' figure. This episode explores the possibility that Daniel chapter 7 was the passage Jesus had in mind and draws from this passage the implications for the Christology of the title 'Son of Man' in Mark.

102: Mark’s ‘Son of Man’ Revealed in the Olivet Discourse

102: Mark’s ‘Son of Man’ Revealed in the Olivet Discourse

January 9, 2020

In Mark chapter 13, Jesus gives the Olivet Discourse that tells of a coming tribulation that is to face the people of God. What most readers miss is that Mark portrays the events surrounding the betrayal, suffering, and death of the Son of Man with much of the same language that was used in Mark 13. This episode explores the relevance of the Son of Man representing the suffering people of God and how this strengthens the argument that the Son of Man is a human being.

101: Mark’s ‘Son of Man’ Bearing the Father’s Glory

101: Mark’s ‘Son of Man’ Bearing the Father’s Glory

January 2, 2020

The Gospel of Mark portrays the Son of Man returning with God's glory to act as judge. What are we to make of the Son of Man who performs God's role of judge and bears God's glory? Do these descriptions make Jesus divine, or are they indicators that God has empowered Jesus as an exceptional human agent of the true God? This episode explores these points within the depiction of the Son of Man in Mark 8:38.

100: Mark’s Suffering and Dying ‘Son of Man’

December 26, 2019

The vocation of the Christ in Mark's Gospel is unpacked as the Son of Man who is to be rejected and killed. This episode explores how this expansion of the role belonging to Israel's Messiah, precisely as an authorized human being, contributes to Mark's Christology and discipleship.

099: Mark’s ‘Son of Man’ Who Has Authority on the Sabbath

December 19, 2019

In the conflict story of Jesus' authority on the Sabbath, the title "Son of Man" is again referenced in Mark's Gospel. This episode explores what Jesus means with this title and how it makes the most sense as a reference to a special human agent of the true God who bears considerable authority.

098: Mark’s ‘Son of Man’ Who Forgives Sins

098: Mark’s ‘Son of Man’ Who Forgives Sins

December 12, 2019

Mark's Gospel depicts its very first occurrence of Jesus claiming to be the Son of Man in a conflict story regarding whether Jesus can forgive sins--a feat typically reserved for God alone. This episode explores how Jesus is portrayed as the authorized Son of Man as a window into the high human christology of Mark.

097: The ‘Son of Man’ According to Daniel

097: The ‘Son of Man’ According to Daniel

December 5, 2019

It seems clear that Jesus Christ drew heavily of the depiction of the 'one like a son of man' in Daniel 7:13. What are we to make of this enigmatic figure? This episode seeks to understand what can be reasonably known about Daniel's 'son of man' and speculate on what significance Jesus might have drawn from its imagery.

096: Origins of The Phrase ‘Son of Man’

096: Origins of The Phrase ‘Son of Man’

November 28, 2019

Jesus used the phrase 'Son of Man' of himself more frequently than any other title. What was it about this phrase that was so important to Jesus? This episode seeks to explore the origins of the phrase by looking at its appearances within the Hebrew Bible. We conclude that 'son of man' casually indicates a mortal human being.

095: Is Matthew 28:19 Corrupted Scripture?

November 21, 2019

Is the reference to baptism "in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit" in Matt 28:19 authentic Scripture? Many argue today that this verse has been tampered with and is now corrupt. This episode seeks to ascertain the details of Matt 28:19 and its original reading.

094: Is Jesus a Heavenly Angel in John’s Apocalypse?

094: Is Jesus a Heavenly Angel in John’s Apocalypse?

November 14, 2019

Although the Book of Revelation is ignored and regarded as confusing by many Christians, some have insisted that it portrays the risen Jesus as one of the heavenly angels. In fact, a few published books by PhD-holding scholars have contributed to this argument. This episode examines their arguments to see if the Book of Revelation, like the rest of the New Testament, depicts Jesus as the human Messiah or as a heavenly angel.

093: Is Jesus a Heavenly Angel in Hebrews or 1 Peter?

093: Is Jesus a Heavenly Angel in Hebrews or 1 Peter?

November 7, 2019

What sort of picture of Jesus do we get from examining the arguments of Hebrews and 1 Peter? Is Jesus, in some sense, a heavenly angel? Or is Jesus the highly exalted human Messiah, seated at Yahweh's right hand? The writers of Hebrews and 1 Peter seem to suggest the latter.

092: Did Paul Think that the Risen Jesus was a Heavenly Angel? (Part 2 of 2)

October 31, 2019

This episode will look at some objections to suggesting that Paul regarded the risen Jesus as a human being. Two passages within the letters of Paul are often pointed to in order to argue that Paul actually did think of the risen Jesus as a nonhuman heavenly angel, even an archangel. This episode examines Gal. 4:14 and 1 Thes. 4:16 to determine what they teach regarding the risen Jesus' identity.

October 24, 2019

According to the Apostle Paul, Jesus was highly exalted after his resurrection. Was this exaltation a transformation into one of the heavenly angels, perhaps even into an archangel? This episode will examine the theology of Paul to discern if he understood the risen Jesus as a member of the heavenly hosts of angels or whether he is still a human being.

Was Jesus transformed, in his resurrected and exalted state, to one of the heavenly angels? Or did the human Jesus remain human in his exalted status? This episode will explore the preaching of the early Church as summarized in the theology of the Book of Acts to see if Jesus was portrayed as one of the heavenly angels.

089: Do the Gospels of Mark and John Portray Jesus as a Heavenly Angel?

089: Do the Gospels of Mark and John Portray Jesus as a Heavenly Angel?

October 10, 2019

In our final study of the NT Gospels, we turn to Mark and John to see if they portray Jesus as an angel from heaven. While both of these Gospels offer verses involving both Jesus and the heavenly angels, never once is there a suggestion that these two categories are to be confused with one another. Jesus is regarded as the human Messiah, both prior to and after his resurrection.

October 3, 2019

In this episode, we examine the Gospel of Luke and its portrayal of Jesus Christ to see if he is regarded as one of the heavenly angels. Although Luke mentions Jesus and angels together in quite a few passages, the two are never confused. There is no indication that Luke wanted his readers to understand Jesus as a heavenly angel, whether prior to his birth, in his earthly ministry, or after the resurrection. Jesus remains the human Messiah, according to the Gospel of Luke.

September 19, 2019

In our final study of angels acting as representative agents of the one true God within the Old Testament, we explore the identity of Jacob's wrestling partner and the function of an angel in enacting judgment on behalf of God. We also ask whether God used an angel to rescue the Israelites out of Egypt.

This episode continues that study of how angels function as fully authorized representatives of the one true God. In doing so, they often speak the words of God, are addressed as 'God', and bear the divine name. However, these messengers were never to be confused with the true God, since they acted as representative agents.

083: Paul’s Theology on the Relationship Between Jesus and the Spirit (Part 4 of 4)

August 29, 2019

This episode explores some of the most difficult passages in Paul that overlap the functions of the risen Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We ultimately conclude that the Spirit is the medium that connects believers in fellowship with the resurrected and exalted Jesus, now seated in heaven.

August 22, 2019

This episode seeks to better understand Paul's theology of Christ and the Spirit as two overlapping experiences for believers. These interactions between the risen Jesus and the Holy Spirit are exhibited in the behavioral change of the people of God, their transformation into the image of God, and the organization of the baptized body of Christ. In short, Paul seems to regard the Spirit as the manner in which Christian communities experience the risen Jesus.

081: Paul’s Theology on the Relationship Between Jesus and the Spirit (Part 2)

August 15, 2019

This episode explores how Paul links the Holy Spirit with Jesus in light of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. What can be learned about Paul’s theology of both Jesus and the Spirit by zeroing in on texts dealing with the resurrection? Can anything be gained by looking at the Spirit’s involvement in the future resurrection of the dead and its parallels to Jesus’ resurrection? It is concluded that the Spirit, for Paul, is God's extended power, rather than a conscious person in the godhead.

080: Paul’s Theology on the Relationship Between Jesus and the Spirit (Part 1)

080: Paul’s Theology on the Relationship Between Jesus and the Spirit (Part 1)

August 8, 2019

How does the Apostle Paul, who is often difficult to understand, describe the relationship between the risen Jesus and the Holy Spirit? In what way, if at all, is Jesus involved in the sending of the Spirit to the people of God? We can actually learn a lot about how Paul understands the nature of the Holy Spirit by looking closely at his letters. The Apostle seems to depict the activity of the Spirit as overlapping the ministry of the risen Lord Jesus Christ without equating the two (or making the Spirit into a 'person' alongside the Father and the Son).

078: Who or What is the Holy Spirit in the Ministry of Jesus?

078: Who or What is the Holy Spirit in the Ministry of Jesus?

As we continue to survey the Gospel of Matthew, we note what it means that Jesus (as Son of God) shares intimate knowledge of the Father and vice versa.

Matthew's Gospel appears to define Jesus as 'Son of God' as one who shows solidarity with humanity. This episode will explore how Jesus is the embodiment of the nation of Israel, how Jesus identifies with the Jewish people in baptism, that Jesus is the climactic type of Isaac, and how Jesus closely associates himself with other faithful human beings called 'sons of God'.

March 21, 2019

In our final exploration of what Luke's Gospel means when attributing the title 'Son of God' to Jesus, we explore Jesus' interactions with the demons, the vision of the Transfiguration, a special comment by Jesus himself, and Jesus' confession before the authorities. It turns out that 'Son of God' is a title consistent with a high human Christology, rather than a trinitarian theology.
