One of the debated areas of biblical theology has to do with what we could call “atonement theory.” In other words, how did Jesus’ death on the cross accomplish our salvation. This is not a debate about “if” his death accomplished it, but “how.” That’s all well and good, but our intent this Easter season is to focus on the fact of our forgiveness being made possible on the cross—not the way that forgiveness operated. Bill Crowder leads the conversations with Elisa Morgan, Mart DeHaan, and Rasool Berry about "Forgiveness, the Story of Easter."
The most important part of the Easter story is that Jesus died, was buried, and rose again! Without the resurrection, there would be nothing to celebrate. But Jesus is alive! In this chapter, you’ll discover why the resurrection is key to our forgiveness.
Lots of relationships are all about “what’s in it for me.” But Jesus sacrificed everything and took on the sins of the whole world in order to offer us forgiveness! In this chapter, you’ll marvel at the self-less sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.
Have you ever been helplessly lost? When you can’t find your way, you need someone to rescue you—and that’s exactly what Jesus has done for us on the cross. In this chapter, you’ll explore how Jesus’ death and resurrection fulfilled His mission “to seek and to save the lost.”
It feels good when someone buys you a cup of coffee. Now imagine how you’d feel if someone paid off your car or your house! In this chapter, you’ll consider the incredible, generous gift that Christ has offered you by paying the debt of your sin with his own blood!
Meatloaf sang, “I would do anything for love,” but it was Jesus who made the ultimate sacrifice on the cross! In this chapter, you’ll hear about the breathtaking love of Jesus.
