The Incarnation of God

Marcus Peter Johnson joins us once again to talk about Christology and soteriology. With his colleague Dr. John C. Clark, Dr. Johnson has co-authored The Incarnation of God: The Mystery of the Gospel as the Foundation of Evangelical Theology (Crossway). Johnson and Clark examine the doctrine of the incarnation and its implications fro the church’s knowledge and worship of God, understanding of salvation, and approach to the Christian life. Be sure also to listen to our previous conversations with Dr. Johnson regarding his book One with Christ: An Evangelical Theology of Salvation (Crossway).

Not your best episode in that I heard clearly that it was said Jesus had fallen sinful proclivities within Himself.

Dr. Johnson and his colleague, John Clarke, argue that Jesus assumed a fallen human nature in order to redeem fully his people (cf. 2 Cor 5:21). At the same time, they argue that the nature Jesus assumed was immediately sanctified, and therefore they affirm Christ’s impeccability. That being said, none of the panelists agree with that position.

The book is a solid effort and worthy of study. I’m glad we were able to speak with Dr. Johnson, and I hope that as a result of this interview, people would interact with his theology. We would like to address the matter more fully on a future episode.

As a followup to this episode, listeners should look into a book by Kevin Chiarot. He challenges T. F. Torrance’s view that Christ assumed a fallen human nature in The Unassumed Is the Unhealed.
