Whatever we say about the cross, we are also saying about God. So what does the cross mean? What can it tell us about God? How can it help us approach, understand, and know God better? In Part III of this three-part series, David Lose introduces us to the three most popular theories, or ways of understanding the Cross, that Christians have turned to through the years.
This online course is based on the Augsburg Fortress DVD-based curriculum of the same name, so if you’ve experienced that teaching, this will be very familiar.
In this six-part class Dr. Lose walks us through:
- The Ancient Theory Explained
- The Ancient Theory Evaluated
- The Substitution Theory Explained
- The Substitution Theory Evaluated
- The Love Theory Explained
- The Love Theory Evaluated
This is a pre-recorded online course that will take an average learner about an hour to work through. You can pause the class at any time and return to pick it up later.
This is the third of three courses in the the online learning version of Making Sense of the Cross series. Part One is called Experience and the Cross. Part Two is called The Bible and the Cross. None of these videos is downloadable, however there are text files included with the classes that you may download.
