How Jesus Christ Atones for Our Sin


How does Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection atone for our sins? How does the death of a fully divine and fully human person offer salvation for all of humankind? In this Seven Minute Seminary, Dr. Joshua McNall presents four models for what’s called atonement, or being made at-one with God. Collectively, these models paint a picture of how we can understand the saving work of Jesus Christ.
