Propitiation is in the Gospel after all….

One of the personal oddities about this post, is that it brings me full circle. I’ve always taught and preached that Jesus’ work on the cross was propitiatory, but for the last decade or two I’ve been convinced that “the Gospel” denotes a more specific message about Jesus being Lord by virtue of his resurrection from the dead. Romans provides much evidence for this…

But now my reading of Romans 1.16-3.27 leads me to understand that Paul insists that the Gospel reveals God’s wrath, as part of revealing his righteousness.

And it reveals God’s wrath by revealing how it was all put upon Jesus on the cross.
