Does Jesus Have to Be God to Pay for Sin? [54:30]
by Alex Hall rated at 3.8 (3 votes so far)
Did Jesus need to be God in order to pay for the sins of the world? Could he be a 'mere' man and still atone for all? Alex Hall wrestles with these questions from a biblical perspective in an effort to free us from traditional dogma and bring us closer to the heart of New Testament Christianity and the atonement theology of the first century Christians.

1 Tim. 3:16 is analyzed in detail with reference to standard scholarly resources in order to determine whether or not the text originally read "God was manifested in the flesh" or "He who was manifested in the flesh." The latter reading is defended.
