In this session we look at the work of redemption carried out by Christ. The work of redemption is THE major theme of the Scriptures. Why was it necessary for Christ to die, and what were the effects of that death? Did Jesus die on Friday? What happened during the three days that Christ was in the grave, where did He go and what did He do during that time? All of these great questions of theology are tackled in this session, with some surprising conclusions.
In this session we explore the necessity and proofs of the bodily resurrection of Christ, and why it is essential to our salvation. Christ’s death was not enough, and the great work of redemption must be completed with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, the Scriptures also have much to say about Christ’s present high priestly ministry in heaven. What is He doing now, how long will it continue, and how can we engage with the Living Christ and His ministry today? Not to be missed!
In these sessions we turn our attention to the doctrinal aspects of the atonement. When Christ died, an exchange took place. He took upon Himself our punishment so that we could stand forgiven and free. It is this aspect of Christ’s work that deals directly with our predicament as helpless sinners, and it is this that constitutes the purpose of His substitutionary death and resurrection. It is here also that we find the term, used so often by Paul the apostle in his letters to the churches, “in Christ Jesus”. In this session in particular we consider the great words of theology connected with the accomplished work of Christ’s redemption: Grace, Redemption, Ransom, Substitution, Propitiation, Reconciliation and Atonement.
What we consider in this lesson demands personal application by faith. The Bible unequivocally declares that Christ died for all people (Romans 5:18; 2 Corinthians 5:15), yet not all will be saved. Many will still go to hell even though provision has been made for them through the cross. The benefits of salvation must be received by faith (Ephesians 2:8). Every aspect of this great salvation is appropriated in the same way, by faith. In this session we consider some of the benefits we can receive through living faith in Christ and His work: Justification, Imputation, Regeneration, Adoption, Sanctification, Perfection and Glorification.
Jesus Christ made full provision for our complete atonement through the cross. In this session we discover the scriptural teaching concerning the extent and application of the saving work of Christ. How do we activate the provision of God in Christ’s atonement in our lives, so it becomes a personal experience of salvation, not just a universal truth disconnected from our everyday reality. We consider the age-old arguments of Calvin and Arminius regarding the part of Divine Sovereignty and Human Responsibility. Great theological subjects are covered such as election, predestination and divine calling, assurance of faith and whether it is possible for us to lose our salvation.
One of the most recurrent and powerful refrains in Scripture are the New Testament expressions, in Christ, in Him, and in whom. Like the concentrated declaration made by God in Exodus 3:14 to sum up His entire Person, I AM, it could be argued that these pithy phrases (in Christ, in Him, in whom) among all others, are the essence of New Testament theology, and the definitive definition of the person who trusts in Christ for salvation. In this session we will explore the significance of this expression in order to discover the profound implications it carries for the born again believer, and how we can activate faith to apply them in our lives.
In his session we prove from Scripture that healing is indeed in the atonement. Just as Christ certainly dies for our sins, the very same sacrifice provided healing for every sickness and disease. Healing has been provided in the atoning work of Christ, and we learn here how to appropriate that healing and administer it to others through faith in the Name of Jesus.
The Scriptures teach that authority exists and is exercised in the natural and supernatural worlds, and that all legitimate authority proceeds from the sovereign rule of God Himself. Misappropriated authority is also exercised in rebellion to God’s gracious rule, but ultimately all illegitimate authorities throughout the universe will be utterly subdued, and the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and of the Father, will be universally recognised. Through Christ’s atoning sacrifice and resurrection, authority has been restored to the believer, who is now commissioned to enforce Christ’s victory and extend God’s gracious rule and kingdom reign. In this session we explore these truths, and the realities and power of properly exercised authority and submission in the life of the believer.
