044: Anti-imperial Christology in 1 Thessalonians (Part 2)

November 29, 2018

As we continue from our previous episode where we observed how Paul's depiction of Jesus Christ upstaged the theology of the Roman emperor, this episode notes that 1 Thessalonians makes a major point about Jesus' lordship in opposition to the lordship of Caesar. The Christian gospel opposed the gospel of Caesar and Paul demanded his converts turn away from participation in the imperial cult in favor of monotheism and messianism.

042: Anti-imperial Christology in Romans

042: Anti-imperial Christology in Romans

November 15, 2018

How were the claims about the person and work of Jesus Christ understood in the Roman Empire where Caesar was widely worshipped as 'son of God', 'Lord', and the bringer of peace to the kingdom? Could Jesus be the exalted lord and Caesar be lord? This episode seeks to examine how Paul described Jesus to his Roman audience, asking if Paul openly subverted the political claims of the Imperial Cult.

041: Adam Christology in Hebrews

041: Adam Christology in Hebrews

November 8, 2018

Having examined Adam Christology in Paul's letters, we can now look at how this theology functioned in the argument of Hebrews. For the unknown author of Hebrews, Jesus was an authentic human being like everyone else, perfected by the sufferings of death, exalted above all things, and acts as the current high priest.

040: Paul’s Adam Christology in Philippians

040: Paul’s Adam Christology in Philippians

November 1, 2018

While Adam Christology is apparent in Romans and 1 Corinthians, is it also taught in Philippians? This episode explores the possibility that the Christ-hymn of Phil. 2:5-11 evokes allusions and echoes to Adam in such as way as to highlight Christ's distinctive person, work, and humanity.
