Creation Story

Most people live in a split world that divides their lives into a sacred part and a secular part. This worldview affects all religions and all people - even atheists have that same paradigm (they just reject it). This worldview puts God in a religious box, and cuts off large parts of our lives from His influence. We need a bigger God and a bigger worldview that will create a seamless world for us which is infused everywhere and equally with God's influence. To get there we need a bigger picture of creation which includes why an all sufficient God would create anything in the first place? We then need to ask what is humanity's role in that creative act? Are we just incidental or are we somehow central to the whole project of God? That is what this first module of the Holistic Gospel will cover. Hopefully it will excite you, rock your mind and build the platform for a new worldview.

Five ways to reframe the gospel

In this final talk, I summarise five profound ways that the Exodus narrative reframes and stretches the traditional gospel of Penal Substitution.

Drama and the humble God

Here is the third talk in our journey through Exodus as an analogy of redemption. In this talk we explore Exodus through the lens of drama. Of course, the whole Bible is in essence a drama in that it is a narrative or story grounded in events rather than abstract ideas.

Salvation as re-creation

In this talk I present Exodus as a 'paradigm' through which we can look at the gospel in broader ways. In this talk I use literary features to the Exodus event - and how it is handled by the prophets much later in the OT.

The gospel according to Exodus

These talks explore difficulties in the traditional ‘Penal Substitution Model’ but in a sense they left us with a void – what can replace the Penal model. We look to the Exodus narrative for broader alternatives.
