043: Anti-imperial Christology in 1 Thessalonians (Part 1)

November 22, 2018

In what sort of ways did Paul's preaching in Thessalonica subvert the imperial claims about Caesar? In this first installment of a two-part series, we will examine some of the ways in which the Lord Jesus Christ upstages the Lord Caesar Nero in 1 Thessalonians.

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.

039: Paul’s Adam Christology in 1 Corinthians

039: Paul’s Adam Christology in 1 Corinthians

October 25, 2018

1 Corinthians shed much light on how Paul understood Jesus as the Second Adam. Not only does Paul define Jesus christologically as a human being representing the new humanity, he also regards Jesus' contrast with Adam as having salvific and eschatological significance.

038: Paul’s Adam Christology in Romans

October 18, 2018

The Apostle Paul describes Jesus as the "Second Adam". What does this term mean for Paul's theology of who Jesus is and whether he preexisted his birth? This episode explores Paul's well-integrated theology of Jesus as the 'Second Adam' in the letter to the Romans.

037: Matthew’s Theology and Purpose in Calling Jesus “Emmanuel”

037: Matthew’s Theology and Purpose in Calling Jesus “Emmanuel”

October 11, 2018

What exactly does Matthew intend for his readers to understand with the reference to Jesus being ‘God with us’? Does this mean that Jesus was to be explicitly equated with the Lord God or is Matthew’s argument more nuanced and developed? This episode seeks to examine the theology and purpose of Jesus being called “Emmanuel” within the Gospel of Matthew.

036: Agency and God’s Agents in the New Testament

036: Agency and God’s Agents in the New Testament

October 4, 2018

Since it is clear that God often invested his name, authority, attributes, and rule into human beings and angels within the Old Testament, does the same phenomena appear in the New Testament? This episode explores how God indeed continues to invest and empower human agents, especially Jesus Christ, with these traits, without losing his oneness and without altering monotheism.

035: Agency and God’s Agents in the Old Testament

September 27, 2018

God regularly uses willing persons to carry forth his will and deeds on earth. How much authority do these agents have? What does it mean when God invests his rule and attributes in his agents? This episode seeks to examine God and his agents in the Old Testament as a preview to the manner in which God sends and authorizes Jesus.

034: Off the Script Thoughts on Jesus’ Humanity

034: Off the Script Thoughts on Jesus’ Humanity

September 20, 2018

In a more casual episode, I wanted to freely think out loud about the relevance of Jesus as a human being, the original function of human beings as image-bearers, how Jesus goes about reflecting God's love, goodness, and just rule, and how Jesus is an example to me personally.

033: Jesus, the Prophet like Moses

September 13, 2018

One of the most unfamiliar titles and vocations attributed to Jesus Christ within the New Testament is that he is "the prophet", or "the prophet like Moses". What is the significance of this title for understanding who Jesus is and his origins? This episode seems to explore the importance of this oft-neglected designation for Jesus.

032: “Let Us Make Man” and Other Passages with Plural Pronouns

032: “Let Us Make Man” and Other Passages with Plural Pronouns

September 6, 2018

Despite the 25,000 grammatical references to God being a single person within Scripture, some readers are more persuaded by a handful of verses where God speaks in the first person plural. One of these passages is the famous Genesis 1:26. This episode explores these rare 'us' texts and concludes that they most likely refer to God speaking with his angelic court (and are thereby not a threat to God's unitary monotheism).

031: The Ascending and Descending Son of Man in John’s Gospel

031: The Ascending and Descending Son of Man in John’s Gospel

August 30, 2018

What does the Gospel of John mean when it twice argues that the Son of Man "ascended" and "descended" from heaven? Does this mean that the Son of Man preexisted in heaven, or is there something else intended? This episode seeks to unravel and answer these complex questions.

029: Does Paul Call Jesus ‘God’ in Romans 9:5?

029: Does Paul Call Jesus ‘God’ in Romans 9:5?

August 16, 2018

Romans 9:5 is grammatically ambiguous in the Greek. Is the passage calling Christ according to the flesh "over all God" or is God the Father described as the one who is over all in an independent doxology? This episode looks at other considerations in order to solve this ambiguity, concluding in the end that Paul does not call Christ "God" in Rom. 9:5.

028: Jewish Preexistence, Both In and Out of the Bible

028: Jewish Preexistence, Both In and Out of the Bible

August 9, 2018

The New Testament, among many of its seemingly complicated christologies, exhibits Jewish Preexistence, which is the theology regarding certain important persons, places, and things that existed within God's plans and purposes. This episode explores the New Testament texts influences by Jewish Preexistence as well as many of the extrabiblical Jewish writings exhibiting the same theology.

027: Differences between God and Jesus Christ

027: Differences between God and Jesus Christ

August 2, 2018

Although it is common to assume, based on church traditions, that God the Father and the Son of God are coequal, there appear to be unarguable differences between these two figures. This episode sets out seven of these differences from Scripture in order to encourage conversation on this issue. It is concluded that Jesus' authentic humanity is the primary reason for why he is not coequal with God the Father.

026: Wisdom Christology throughout the Gospel of John

026: Wisdom Christology throughout the Gospel of John

July 26, 2018

Having already observed that the opening Prologue of the Gospel of John is a poem of Wisdom Christology, we turn in this episode to see if the rest of the book shows similar signs. In fact, there are over a dozen instances where Jesus within the Gospel of John is described in terms echoing Lady Wisdom. John's Gospel appears to be the best example in the New Testament of Wisdom Christology, and this episode details why that is in fact the case.

025: Wisdom Christology in the Prologue of John’s Gospel

025: Wisdom Christology in the Prologue of John’s Gospel

July 19, 2018

John's Gospel begins with an eighteen verse prologue where Jesus is depicted as the incarnation/embodiment of God's creative and powerful word. However, it is argued in this episode that the echoes of Lady Wisdom, rather than the personified 'word', would have been more clearly evident by the earliest readers of the Gospel of John. This episode notes the evidence for Wisdom Christology in John 1:1-18.

024: Wisdom Christology in the Book of Hebrews

024: Wisdom Christology in the Book of Hebrews

July 12, 2018

As we continue our journey through the New Testament, we arrive at the Book of Hebrews. Within the first three verses of this sermon, there appear to be four statements about Christ that have their origins in descriptions about Lady Wisdom, specifically from the book Wisdom of Solomon. For the author of Hebrews, the risen and exalted Son of God is the fullest embodiment of God's Wisdom so that things formerly said about this Wisdom figure can now be attributed to Jesus.

023: Wisdom Christology in the Gospel of Matthew

023: Wisdom Christology in the Gospel of Matthew

July 5, 2018

Within our ongoing study of Wisdom Christology within the New Testament, we move to examine the Gospel of Matthew. Within this ancient biography of the human Jesus, we observe five deliberate connections with Lady Wisdom. For the Gospel of Matthew, just like 1 Corinthians and Colossians before it, Jesus Christ is the fullest embodiment of God's personified Wisdom and is now the locus of God's wise teaching and interaction with his creation.

022: Wisdom Christology in Colossians

022: Wisdom Christology in Colossians

June 28, 2018

In our continued study of Wisdom Christology throughout the New Testament, we arrive at the Epistle to the Colossians. Within this letter, the famous hymn about Christ in Col. 1:15-20 lavishly praises the accomplishments of Jesus in light of things formerly said about Lady Wisdom (without implying that Jesus consciously preexisted his birth). Furthermore, Colossians repeatedly depicts Christlike behavior as wise teaching and wisdom from God.

021: Wisdom Christology in 1 Corinthians

June 21, 2018

Having already examined Proverbs, Sirach, and Philo depicting God's Wisdom as a personified female figure embodied into human beings, we now turn to the New Testament. In this episode, we look at Paul's first letter to the Corinthians where Jesus is also depicted as the human embodiment of Lady Wisdom, specifically in light of his death, resurrection, and exaltation.

020: The Origins of Wisdom Christology in Sirach and Philo

020: The Origins of Wisdom Christology in Sirach and Philo

June 14, 2018

The theology exhibited in Proverbs wherein Lady Wisdom can be embodied into human beings was influential with other Jewish writers before the New Testament was written. This episode aims to lay that foundation by looking at the Book of Sirach and the writings of Philo. Both Sirach and Philo continue the argument from Proverbs by depicting God's Wisdom, personified as a female figure, as embodied into the human figures Simon the High Priest and Sarah, Abraham's wife.

019: The Origins of Wisdom Christology in the Book of Proverbs

June 7, 2018

Modern scholars have observed that many New Testament authors depict Jesus in light of Lady Wisdom (i.e., God's wise interaction with and instruction to his creation). However, most casual readers of the Bible seem to be unaware of what this 'Wisdom Christology' actually is. This episode seems to examine the origins of Wisdom Christology by studying the Book of Proverbs, where astute readers will note that Lady Wisdom is embodied/incarnate into human beings in chapter thirty-one.

018: John 1 and the Genesis Creation

018: John 1 and the Genesis Creation

May 31, 2018

Despite the dominant scholarly consensus, there is a vocal minority on social media insisting that John 1:1 is not pointing back to the Genesis creation, but instead is referring to the beginning of Jesus' evangelistic ministry of preaching the Logos as gospel. This episode seeks to create conversation with this minority perspective by noting what appears to be the fairly obvious literary and theological connections between John chapter one and Genesis chapter one.

014: An Introduction to Preexistence within the Bible

May 3, 2018

Many of the debates about Jesus' identity revolve around how one understands the nature of 'preexistence' within the Bible. This episode sets out to introduce the basics of how preexistence was understood and taught by the various biblical authors. We will explore how Jesus was regarded within God's plans/mind and how the New Testament authors understood Jesus as the current embodiment of God's personified Wisdom and Word.

013: The Christ Hymn in Philippians 2

April 26, 2018

What are we to make of the controversial passage of Phil. 2:5-11? This episode attempts to explain the nuances of the passage by highlighting Paul's allusions to Adam, Isaiah's Suffering Servant, and even to the Emperor Nero. Furthermore, we show that the Philippians passage is actually an ethical argument for Christians to live in humility and obedience to God, just as Christ demonstrated during his earthly life.

012: The Bible’s Use of ‘God’ Language for Human Beings

012: The Bible’s Use of ‘God’ Language for Human Beings

April 19, 2018

How are we to responsibly interpret the fact that the Bible both calls certain exceptional human beings "God" and insists that there is only one true God? The answer lies in the fact that the true God can invest his authority into certain human beings as his representatives, such as a prophet, a judge, and even a royal king. This connection appears to be the most prudent way to understand Jesus being called "God," despite being the human Messiah.

Why does it seem that the most exalted praises are given to Jesus after his resurrection? Is the risen Jesus equal in status and rank with God the Father? How should we interpret the fact that God has titles and Jesus is often addressed with those very same titles? This episode seeks to answer these questions by looking at the exaltation of the human Jesus.

009: Jesus has a God

March 29, 2018

Did Jesus have a God? This might sound like a strange question to some, but it appears that Jesus himself stated on multiple occasions that he did indeed have a God above him. The God of Jesus is also addressed as "my Father" many times in the New Testament. This episode will examine how Jesus understood the Father as 'his God' and will examine how Jesus acted in subordination to God the Father.

008: Jesus as God’s Agent in the Gospels

008: Jesus as God’s Agent in the Gospels

March 22, 2018

In this episode, we explore the principle of agency wherein a sent agent fully represents the one who sent him. We demonstrate that this understanding of agency was practically taken for granted within the first century Jewish world and note how Jesus operates as God's authoritatively sent agent. Since Jesus is God's agent, Jesus can exercise divine prerogatives, speaks God's words, and fully represent God without compromising monotheism.

007: The Humanity of Jesus in the Gospels

March 15, 2018

In this episode, we examine how the four New Testament Gospel accounts portray Jesus as a human figure. Do Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John call Jesus a "human being?" Is Jesus portrayed as omniscient in the manner that Yahweh is omniscient? Do the four Gospels describe Jesus as growing in understanding, as one who learns, or even as one who has limited knowledge as all human beings possess? This episode seeks to answer these questions as we continue to explore what the Bible has to say about Jesus Christ, the human Messiah.

Both Matthew and Luke offer birth narratives and lengthy genealogies wherein Jesus' birth is described in detail. Luke, having also authored the Book of Acts, offers his thoughts on Jesus' origins in both documents, so we will explore both his Gospel and Acts in this episode.

004: The Human Jesus Anticipated in the Old Testament (part three)

004: The Human Jesus Anticipated in the Old Testament (part three)

February 22, 2018

This episode continues our exploration throughout the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) in which we observe how the Messiah was expected to be of the line of David, thus making him an authentic human figure. The Old Testament has a lot to say about the coming Son of David, especially within the Psalms and the Prophets. As the Son of David, Jesus exists as the climactic and long-awaited human descendant, and Jesus being a human figure is one of the central points of Biblical Unitarianism.

This episode of the Biblical Unitarian Podcast will give you plenty to talk about as you begin conversations with others on these critically important topics of faith and theology.

003: The Human Jesus Anticipated in the Old Testament (part two)

003: The Human Jesus Anticipated in the Old Testament (part two)

February 9, 2018

The Old Testament regards the coming messianic figure to be of the line of King David, clearly making him a human being (as David was). In fact, there are so many passages repeating and expounding this "Son of David" theology that it will require two episodes of the Biblical Unitarian Podcast to cover them all, and those are just the ones within the Old Testament.

If the Messiah was to descend from the line of King David, then he would be both an authentic human figure as well as one who was distinct from Israel's God, Yahweh. Our discussion on the Messiah as a descendant of David will surely give you something to talk about with your friends and family as it pertains to Jesus' identity and vocation.

002: The Human Jesus Anticipated in the Old Testament (part one)

002: The Human Jesus Anticipated in the Old Testament (part one)

February 9, 2018

In the first century C.E., Jesus was recognized by his followers as the "Messiah," a title denoting the anointed king of the kingdom in whom all of Israel's theology would find their climax. This office of Messiah came with a set of qualifications (i.e, job descriptions), and these qualifications are set out within the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible).

This episode of the Biblical Unitarian Podcast begins to survey the qualifications of the Messiah set out within the Old Testament, finding primarily that the passages which various Jewish groups drew upon to characterize the anticipated Messiah seem to regard this figure as an authentic human being. We hope that this episode encourages you to dust off your Old Testament so that you can start some healthy conversations regarding the important topic of Jesus Christ's identity.

001: God is One Person

001: God is One Person

February 9, 2018

One of the major truth claims of Biblical Unitarians is that the God of the Bible is a single person (rather than a multi-personal God taught within binitarian and trinitarian faiths). This episode beings to scratch the surface of the massive amount of biblical data that demonstrates that God is a single person. We survey a variety of texts, both in the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) and within the New Testament.

We particularly note how Jesus Christ himself taught on multiple occasions this very truth, namely that God is one person. We hope that this episode helps you start conversations with your friends and family regarding this massively important subject.

000: About This Podcast

000: About This Podcast

February 9, 2018

"What is a Biblical Unitarian?" In this introductory episode, we set the scope for the Biblical Unitarian Podcast. In doing so, we define what a Biblical Unitarian is, what BUs believe, and the response we are attempting to produce among our listeners. Biblical Unitarians regard the God of the Bible to be a single, undivided person. They also recognize that the Bible teaches that Jesus Christ was a human being who did not literally preexist his birth in any way. These episodes are aimed to start cordial conversations and to get people talking intelligently about who God is and who Jesus is.
