064: What Does ‘Son of God’ Mean in John’s Gospel? (Part 1)

April 18, 2019

The Gospel of John is often assumed to be the document that portrays Jesus in the most exalted christology--even higher than what Matthew, Mark, and Luke taught. But is this really the case? This episode begins our study of what the Fourth Gospel means when it calls Jesus 'Son of God' to see if popular opinion holds up to a detailed analysis of the text.

063: What Does ‘Son of God’ Mean in Matthew? (part 3 of 3)

April 11, 2019

The role of 'Son of God' is a crucial role in the messianic understanding of Jesus, according to Matthew. This episode will look at the Son of God's relationship to the heavenly Father, the Son's lack of omniscience, the understanding of the Jewish authorities in regard to Jesus' claims, and the use of the title surrounding the events of the crucifixion.

062: What Does ‘Son of God’ Mean in Matthew? (part 2 of 3)

April 4, 2019

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. We also carefully examine Simon Peter's confession to see what the Father revealed to him about Jesus' identity. Lastly, we explore the meaning behind Jesus walking on the water in a manner that led to him being worshipped as Son of God.

061: What Does ‘Son of God’ Mean in Matthew? (part 1 of 3)

March 28, 2019

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'.

060: What Does ‘Son of God’ Mean in Luke? (part 3 of 3)

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.

March 14, 2019

This episode continues our survey of Luke's Gospel to see how he defines the title 'Son of God' in regard to Jesus. We explore the baptism of Jesus, the genealogy, and the temptation narrative in the wilderness. Luke's portrayal of Jesus as Son of God is consistent with a 'high human Christology.'

058: What Does ‘Son of God’ Mean in Luke? (part 1 of 3)

March 7, 2019

Being the largest Gospel in the New Testament, Luke has a lot to say about Jesus as the Son of God. Does Luke agree with Mark that Jesus is the messianic human Son of God, rejected and killed for God's purposes, or does Luke make the title 'Son of God' out to refer to a preexistent divine being who became human? This episode will look at Jesus' birth and childhood to see how 'Son of God' is defined by Luke.

057: What Does ‘Son of God’ Mean in Mark? (Part 2 of 2)

February 28, 2019

What sort of information can be gained by examining Jesus' dialogues with the unclean spirits--those who know that he is the Son of God? Does Jesus identifying himself as the "beloved son" in the Parable of the Wicked Tenants make him a preexistent being? What should be made of Jesus' admission of ignorance in regard to the day and hour of the second coming? These questions will be answered as we continue to explore what the title 'Son of God' means in the Gospel of Mark.

056: What Does ‘Son of God’ Mean in Mark? (Part 1)

February 21, 2019

Does the title 'Son of God' refer to a preexistent being who became human in Jesus? Does 'Son of God' refer to the second person of the Godhead? The earliest Gospel, namely Mark, does not seem to think so. Rather, Mark teaches that Jesus is the royal Son of God who suffers and dies as God's empowered human Messiah.

055: The Israelite King and High Human Christology (Part 4 of 4)

055: The Israelite King and High Human Christology (Part 4 of 4)

February 14, 2019

In this episode, we note how the human Israelite kings from the line of David are called "mighty god", share in God's shepherding prerogatives, are invested with God's own name, and can be described as one who is "like God." If all of these things can be said of fully human kings, then this has considerable implications for how we interpret New Testament christology where the very same empowerments are bestowed upon Jesus, the human Messiah.

054: The Israelite King and High Human Christology (Part 3)

054: The Israelite King and High Human Christology (Part 3)

February 7, 2019

Our exploration of how the Hebrew Bible depicts God investing his authority, attributes, and prerogatives into the human Israelite king continues with a survey of Psalm 89 and 1 Chronicles 29. In these passages, the human king possesses unique empowerment from God, receives worship, and even rules on the throne of Yahweh. We then turn to the New Testament to note that the human Jesus is portrayed with the very same empowerments from the only true God without infringing upon monotheism, culminating in a high human Christology.

053: The Israelite King and High Human Christology (Part 2)

January 31, 2019

This episode examines Psalm 72 in its portrayal of the human Israelite king--a king empowered with God's own prerogatives and judgments. This human king is worshiped, acts as savior, and even possesses a name that preexisted the daytime sun. Each of these points finds parallels in the NT Gospels in their portrayal of King Jesus, a human being empowered by the one true God in a manner consistent with what might be called a "high human Christology."

January 24, 2019

In what ways can a study of the various kings of Israel within the Old Testament help understand the four Gospels' portrayal of Jesus, the king of the God's kingdom? In this episode, we will begin by examining Psalms 2 and 45, noting how these human Israelite kings were highly invested and empowered by God in ways that parallel the high human christology of the New Testament.

051: Elisha and High Human Christology

051: Elisha and High Human Christology

January 17, 2019

The lesser-known prophet Elisha is depicted in 2 Kings as an extrodinarilly-empowered human being, possessing control over nature, the ability to extend his human presence, and even summoning the heavenly host to his disposal. If Elisha was a divinely-empowered human being, what does it mean when the four New Testament Gospels depict Jesus Christ with the same miracles and authority? Answer: Jesus is also bearing a high human status.

050: Elijah and High Human Christology

050: Elijah and High Human Christology

January 10, 2019

Like the human beings Adam and Moses, the prophet Elijah shared in God's unique attributes, glory, and prerogatives. If Elijah was a divinely-empowered human being who controlled nature, gave life, and shared in God's glory, then we should not be surprised when the four New Testament Gospels portray Jesus Christ as a human being sharing in the very same empowerment.

049: Moses and High Human Christology

049: Moses and High Human Christology

January 3, 2019

In what ways does Moses, the famous prophet from the Hebrew Bible, bear God's unique attributes and prerogatives? Moses is called "God", Moses shares in God's actions, and Moses even bears God's glory upon his unveiled face. The New Testament Gospels also depict the human Jesus as empowered with God's name, sharing in God's actions, and bearing a glorified face, resulting in a high human christology.

048: Adam and High Human Christology

December 27, 2018

What is the best way of understanding the four Gospels as they depict the human Jesus sharing in divine attributes belonging to God alone? This episode examines three portrayals of the primordial human being Adam, who is regularly depicted as also sharing in God's unique traits and attributes. Understanding how Jews regarded Adam's relationship with God helps us better interpret how the Gospels portray the human Jesus in exalted terms.

047: Anti-imperial Christology in Philippians (Part 3)

December 20, 2018

As we continue our study into Paul's depiction of Christ in Phil 2:5-11, we note further example where Caesar is subverted. Rome's harmonious peace is called into question with Jesus' exalted authority. The authoritative names of 'Augustus' and 'Father of the Fatherland' are also undercut with the Father's authoritative name bestowed upon Jesus. Lastly, Jesus acts as the moral example for the people to follow, rather than Caesar's example.

December 13, 2018

This episode sets out to explore the important christological passage of Phil 2:5-11 in order to see if it also subverts the claims of Rome and her emperors. Would Paul's depiction of Jesus have been heard as offensive to those loyal to Caesar and his empire? I think so, and I think Paul intended that his argument be subversive.

December 6, 2018

In Philippians 3:20-21, Paul regards Jesus as the true 'savior' and 'lord', deliberately drawing his readers away from their loyalties to Caesar, to whom these titles were widely given. How else does Paul laud the risen Jesus Christ by subverting the Roman emperor in this passage? Find out in this week's episode!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

May 24, 2018

Does the New Testament depict believers praying/offering prayers to Jesus? You might be surprised at the answer. This episode seeks to honestly assess how the New Testament uses 'prayer language' for Jesus and concludes by offering a model on the biblical way to appropriately direct prayers.

Does it even matter what we believe about who God is and who Jesus is? Some say that it does; others say that it doesn't. In this episode, we explore three practical applications taught in Scripture regarding Biblical Unitarian theology, one of which is highly controversial.

015: Should Christians Worship Jesus?

May 10, 2018

If Jesus is worshiped in the Bible, does that prove that he is God? Not necessarily. This episode will examine how the Bible depicts worship offered to human figures and then notes the difference between the worship offered to God and the worship offered to Christ.
