Who is Jesus? Part 11

Our Only Hope   The following is an enhanced transcript of the TheoTalk episode with the same title.  It was the most radical claim anyone could ever make. But there it is. In John 14:6, Jesus declares, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father but by me.” This claim, of course, is either true or false.  Throughout this series, I’ve tried to show you how the Old Testament, together with the words and deeds of Jesus and the apostles affirm that his claim is true; that he was/is the champion God […]

Who is Jesus? Part 10

The Risen Savior-King The following is an enhanced transcript of the TheoTalk episode with the same title. It was the most earth-shaking event in history, and it’s still rocking our world today.  After Jesus voluntarily went to the cross to pay the death penalty for sin, his dead body was placed in a solid rock tomb, guarded by professional soldiers who had everything to lose if they lost track of that body. Even so, on the Sunday morning following his Friday execution, the tomb of Jesus was found empty, a fact neither the Jews nor the Romans disputed. Though many […]

Who is Jesus? Part 9

The God-man: Fully Human (Tho Sinless)   The following is an enhanced transcript of the TheoTalk episode with the same title.  We’ve been talking about the greatest mystery in history; as beautiful as it is profound; as shocking as it is wonderful, as the Creator became part of his creation. The infinite God wrapped himself in finite humanity. The one-and-only, eternal God became one of us to live the perfect human life we don’t live, die a sacrificial death to pay the penalty for our sins, and rise again to lift us from our fall, restore to us a right […]

Who is Jesus? Part 8

The God-man: Fully God (According to the Apostles) The following is an enhanced transcript of the TheoTalk episode with the same title. Though it’s impossible to fully grasp this beautiful mystery of the incarnation: God becoming one of us in order to make us his, the Old Testament, together with the words and deeds of Jesus affirm he was and is the one-and-only God-man: fully God and fully man; one person existing in two natures, without confusion or compromise of either nature.  And that ought to make our hearts sing, because it means the God who had every right to […]

Who is Jesus? Part 7

The God-man: Fully God (According to His Deeds) The following is an edited transcript of the TheoTalk episode with the same title. People often associate Jesus with his miracles. And rightly so.  In Luke 4, Jesus affirmed he was God’s Messiah by quoting from and applying to himself a Messianic prophecy from Isaiah 61, which declared that when Messiah came, he would conquer the curse of sin and its effects. And so, through his restorative, renewing, healing miracles, Jesus demonstrated he was who he claimed to be: God’s Messiah; the King who had come to reestablish God’s righteous reign upon […]

Who is Jesus? Part 6

The God-man: Fully God (According to His Words) The following is an edited transcript of the TheoTalk episode with the same title. What if it’s true?  What if the God who made us for himself and had every right to condemn us for our rebellion against him, chose instead to become one of us, in order to lift us from our fall, restore to us a right relationship with him, and re-establish his righteous reign upon the earth, at immense cost to himself? Not only would this guarantee the redemption he promises is sure, it would affirm his intentions toward […]

Who is Jesus? Part 5

The God-man: Fully God (according to the OT)   The following is an enhanced transcript of the TheoTalk episode with the same title. It’s the story of the ages. The story we find ourselves in: of the God who was there before anything else; who created all things and us in his image to enjoy a soul-surrounding, self-defining relationship with him. But we rebelled against God. And though our rebellion made us worthy of his righteous wrath, God didn’t give us what we deserved. Instead, he promised to send a Messiah to lift us from our fall, restore to us […]

Who is Jesus? Part 4

King over God’s Restored Kingdom   The following is an enhanced transcript of the TheoTalk episode with the same title.  What do we mean when we say Jesus is not only savior to a fallen world, but king over God’s kingdom he came to re-establish upon the earth?  Talk of kings and kingdoms is a bit foreign to Americans like me. But, it turns out, every earthly king who’s ever reigned over an earthly kingdom has done so under the shadow of the ultimate king, who created and therefore owns all things. Genesis 1:1,  reminds us, “In the beginning, God […]

Who is Jesus? Part 3

Savior of His People   The following is an enhanced transcript of the TheoTalk episode with the same title.  Why is it we’re so enamored with stories? Whether it’s a good book or classic movie, why are we attracted to stories? Especially stories of personal and/or communal redemption?  I think it’s because those stories reflect the story we find ourselves in. The story of the God who was there before there was anything else; who created us in his image to flourish in a right relationship with him — as Adam and Eve did in Eden, until they rebelled against […]
