The Cross and Creation - Part 7 - Which model fits best for what happened at Calvary?

In this latest edition in the Cross and Creation series,  Tony and Andrew explore some of the metaphors for what happened at Calvary. None of them really fit the Penal Substitution metaphor.  They range over several metaphors like reconciliation, and redemption, but focus in on adoption and dominion; Calvary was the great battle for dominion of the cosmos, and we are adopted into that kingship won at Calvary.  The episode begins with a recap of our journey thus far.

To assist with the talk Andrew has provided a short set of Powerpoint slides on the subject. Please see the "Download Documents" link below.
