Ten Minute Theology #1 - Atonement

Check out the first episode of "Ten Minute Theology," seeking to think rightly about God, scriptures, and the church....ten minutes at a time.

 

This inaugural episode is centered around a concept that garners much discussion in books, blogs, and sermons, and is something I am quite passionate about: atonement. How does Jesus' death and resurrection atone for the sins of humans? Did God need to punish someone? Does this matter to us today?
