Episode 2: The Crucified King

"Man's maker was made man... that the Bread might hunger, the Fountain thirst, the Light sleep, the Way be tired on its journey; that Truth might be accused of false witnesses, the Teacher be beaten with whips, the Foundation be suspended on wood; that Strength might grow weak; that the Healer might be wounded; that Life might die."

                                                                                                          -St Augustine of Hippo

There are a few things about Jesus that everyone regardless of their convictions seems to know. He was seen as a miracle worker, a public teacher, was condemned to crucifixion and Christians say he rose again. At first glance, those facts seem to be disjointed fragments that bear no relation to one another. The conviction of the Christian church has been that these are not odds and ends that are unrelated to one another, but many facets of the same unified person and work. 

So how do the miracles of Jesus, his teaching on the kingdom of God, and his death and resurrection work together? What about his ascension? In this second episode, we finish our conversation with Dr. Greg Lanier and Dr. Stephen Wellum on Christology
