What is the humiliation of Christ? What is the meaning of the incarnation? How did the Son of God participate in the sufferings of earthly life? What is the wrath of God and why does a correct understanding of God’s wrath matter today?
In this episode of The Podechesis Podcast, Jim, Allen, and Brett are joined by special guest, Rev. Dr. Jonathan Smith, Campus Minister of the Georgia Southern University Wesley Foundation to discuss question 27 John Wesley’s Revision of the Westminster Shorter Catechism—Q27: In what did Christ’s humiliation consist? They will discuss the meaning of God coming down to us in the incarnation, the life of Jesus along with his suffering, death, and descent into hell. They will also talk about God’s wrath, sin, and ultimate redemption through Christ atoning work.
Along the way, Jim accuses Brett of being decades older than he is, Brett tries hard to not get caught in another heresy, and Allen can’t stand all the talk about a university that is not UGA.
