Photo credit:  Creative Commons Zero.  These resources explore the meaning of Jesus' death, from the understanding of the Christian community in its first four hundred years, expressed in the Nicene and Chalcedonian creeds.  Jesus is God's way of undoing human evil, in a personal, loving way.  His death was the climax of his victorious struggle over the corruption in his own human nature. We call this "Medical Substitution," although it has gone by other names. 

Implications

 

We compare this understanding to the dominant Protestant understanding, which is called "Penal Substitution."  If you are just learning about the significance of this difference, please check out the resources under the links for "Implications."

Tools

 

These resources are practical tools, based on Medical Substitutionary Atonement Theology.  The implications involve restorative justice and God being 100% good.

 

Sources

 

These resources explore the foundation of Medical Substitution as the best understanding of the Bible, and the original understanding of the church. There are also links to books, web articles, etc. from representatives of the three broad Christian traditions.
