Penal Substitution

We needed a substitute, someone that could satisfy the justice of God because all us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) In Romans 3:25-26 gives an scriptural reference to penal substitution. It says, “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness; that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.”

Penal substitution conveys the idea that the debt the humanity owed God, we were unable to pay. Therefore, it required and individual substitute to die in our stead. The Old Testament speaks to types, for instance Boaz as a kinsmen redeemer but that type breaks down because Boaz was sinful. Oden mentions four qualifications, his sinlessness, his humanity, his deity and his federal headship of humanity and identification with sinners. (2) Why are these four qualification necessary?

The Two natures of Christ “Tome of Leo”

Concerning the great theological debate between Alexandria and Antioch on the two natures of Christ: how could Jesus Christ be both divine and human? This question presents the idea that a conflict of inflexible doctrinal difference existed within the church and divided the church by prohibiting any interaction or interpretation of the divinity and humanity of Jesus. The inflexible conflict could lead many in the way of rejection of the idea that Jesus Christ was divine as well as human and could be to the view of Docetism or Apollinarianism. In his “Tome of Leo” Pope Leo I brings clarity to the conflict by stating, “For we could not overcome the author of sin and death, unless he had taken our nature and made it his own, whom sin could not defile nor death retain, also adding, “Each nature performs its proper functions in communion with the other: the Word performs what pertains to the Word, the flesh what pertains to the flesh (1)”.

When you consider the theological debate between Alexandria and Antioch could it be a play on words that is utilized to describe the two natures of Christ?
