131: The Early Christian View of God in Romans

131: The Early Christian View of God in Romans

July 30, 2020

Paul's massive letter to the Romans has much to say about monotheism, Christology, and the relationship between God and Jesus. For Paul, God continues to be one person, as expressed in the Jewish Shema. Jesus is the descendant of David and the second Adam--a human being. This episode also explores some of the trickier passages in Romans surrounding the person of Jesus and his exalted role as Lord.

130: The Early Christian View of God in 2 Corinthians

130: The Early Christian View of God in 2 Corinthians

July 23, 2020

In this episode, we examine 2 Corinthians to see how Paul understands the true God and the risen Jesus. We discuss the benediction of 2 Corinthians which is often thought of being a reference to the Trinity. Furthermore, we examine the theology of the "rich" Jesus who became poor, asking if this is even a reference to incarnation at all. We also pay special attention to the theology of the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ.

129: The Early Christian View of God in 1 Corinthians

129: The Early Christian View of God in 1 Corinthians

July 16, 2020

In 1 Corinthians, Paul clearly defines the Christian God to be one person, the Father. Jesus is the human Messiah whose death was sufficient to cover sins. The risen and exalted Jesus remains subordinate to the Father in both rank and function. Paul also details his Wisdom Christology in 1 Corinthians, and in doing so he regards God's personified Wisdom as the type of the man Jesus Christ.

128: The Early Christian View of God in Galatians

128: The Early Christian View of God in Galatians

July 9, 2020

In this episode, we look at how God and Christ are portrayed in the early letter of Galatians. We note that Paul regards God as a single person, as the Father alone. Furthermore, we observe that Jesus is the Son of God who was born of a woman and who died. God, of course, woke Jesus up from the dead. The resurrected Jesus represents believers as those who are "in Christ"--that is, those who are represented by the anointed king Jesus.

127: The Early Christian View of God in 2 Thessalonians

127: The Early Christian View of God in 2 Thessalonians

July 2, 2020

How did early Christians understand the exalted Jesus alongside the one true God of Israel in 2 Thessalonians? This episode examines the contents of this epistle in order to see if the Jewish God is anything other than a single self--the Father. Furthermore, we look at how the exalted Jesus is described with titles, roles, and acts of judgment. Lastly, we consider whether the Lord Jesus Christ is "our God" in a disputed passage.
