Atonement and Union with Christ

John Murray writes that the nature of union with Christ is both spiritual and mystical and that it is “the central truth of the whole doctrine of salvation.” If this is the case, how is it so? How does the atonement, the cross of Christ, relate to this “central truth of the whole doctrine of salvation”? Rob and Bob discuss these things and more on this week’s episode of Theology Simply Profound.

Penal Substitutionary Atonement

On today’s episode of Theology Simply Profound, Rob and Bob continue their discussion about the doctrine of the atonement. Today we take a closer look at the concept of penal substitution. In doing so, we review some of the other theories of the atonement. But what does the Bible say about the nature of Christ’s cross? What does it do? What is meant by penal substitution? Is it necessary? What biblical texts teach us about penal substitution?

The Bible and the Cross

This episode of Theology Simply Profound brings our reading of J. Gresham Machen’s final three audio addresses to a close. This address, “The Bible and the Cross,” would have aired on December 27, 1936. Machen would not finish this series of radio addresses on the atonement. Just five days later on January 1, 1937, he would succumb to pneumonia dying in the Lord.

And so, this series closes so abruptly as life seems to do so very often. With the words, “Isn’t the Reformed faith grand?” and “So thankful for active obedience of Christ. No hope without it,” Machen departed in peace.
