We continue our Lenten series on Fleming Rutledge’s outstanding book, The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ (2015).
In this post we begin another major chapter (11) – this one entitled The Substitution
Again, as with the previous chapter, this one starts with a table of contents that could be for a book.
Section 1: a theological history of the motif of substitution
Section 2: Objections to the penal substitution model
Section 3: Karl Barth on Substitution
Sections 4 and 5: on the matter of agency – we may reword this as ‘Who is ‘responsible’ for the crucifixion?’
