Dear friends, Skye Fackre Gibson is sharing the news that on July 31, Dot and Gabe will be moving from Cape Cod to Oregon to live with family. As you know, Dot has been living for several years with Parkinson's Disease. For many of us attending the Craigville Colloquy this year, this may be our

Greetings Herb, in fact, I did receive your message in my email. Happy days are here again! You raise an important point in inferring that my hermeneutical reliance on 2 Corinthians 5:19 (God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself) is more or less synonymous with Wright's depiction of

Dear George, How is your suggestion that we start at 2 Cor 5 and go back different than what Wright has done? I thought that he was taking Second Temple Judaism as the pre history to Jesus’s death and resurrection to understand the incarnation, so that the incarnation was not rooted in the

Thank you Bill, Many years ago, in response to a pastor who insisted that Christ died for our sins, i said to him, "Do you know why Christ died, he was executed." From a faith-based perspective, both are true and need to be accounted for. Wright has dome yeoman service in fleshing out some of

Dear Bill, I am working thru Rutledge’s Crucifixion and working thru is a good word. Thanks for your notes on Thurs. Sorry we didn’t follow them more closely. I am probably the problem. Herb From: WILLIAM RADER Sent: Saturday, March 11, 2017 12:26 PM To: confessi...@googlegroups.com

George and All, First, congratulations, George, on the publication of your book The Historical Jesus and the Christ of Faith. And now thank you for calling our attention to the book by Wright on the atonement. I've been working my way through it, mostly agreeing with his conclusions. I'm

brief quote from Wright on the atonement

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 16:51:11 UTC

Colleagues, after I posted that lengthy message, I also noticed the following passage from Wax's article on Wright, which provides a very apt summary of his position: Perhaps the best understanding of Wright’s view of the atonement is found in his contribution to the New Dictionary of Theology.

Greetings once again, colleagues. It is good to see that at least Janet and Herb are receiving CC messages through email. I assume others are; however, I am not among them and had to retrieve their responses through the archives. I am including my email into the To box in the hope that that

Dear George, I don’t have Wright’s book, could you summarize Wright’s position on the climax of the covenant and reformed thinking on atonement? So we can begin a discussion. I also wonder where the Incarnation relates? Herb From: Janet Keyes Sent: Friday, March 10, 2017 7:00 PM To:

Greetings once again, colleagues, I see by the archives that my recent message went to the listserv, though I did not receive it in my email. I'm wondering how many others are not receiving messages. Not much to say at this point--would have to give it much thought--I would like to bring to

Greetings all I haven't seen a message on the Confessing Christ listserv since the one I posted on Feb. 10th. I'm wondering if the site is still operating. For those who may have an interest, I've attached a promotional flyer and and extended sample from my new book on the historical Jesus and

Thanks Herb, All excellent commentary. Many within the mainline denominations are struggling with how to respond to the new political realities and also are some evangelicals. Rachel Held Evan's blog post, "Life After Evangelicalism," as well as the posted comments merits much reflection. (
