Talk about Sin, Part VI: What Jesus does with Sin!

Talk about Sin, Part VI: What Jesus does with Sin!

The Rev. Greg Jones reflects on different ways that Jesus' death has been understood as saving, as a death 'for us'. He explores Jewish, Roman, and Modern ways of talking about our atonement with God through Jesus.

The Way, I— Theology

The Way, I— Theology

The Rev. Samuel Gregory Jones explores the essential Christian worldview. We live in an in-between time, a time between the Resurrection of Jesus and the Second Coming, when Jesus will be, as Paul says, all in all. We live, that is, between the inauguration of God’s Kingdom in Jesus and Spirit and its final realization. In this in-between time, the Christian community is an embassy of God’s Kingdom in the world, and Christians are ambassadors of Christ. As a famous theologian once said, the Church is a tree with its roots in the future and its leaves and fruits in the present.

Part V: Saint Paul, Generosity & Thankgiving

God’s Giving and the Great Thanksgiving

with the Rev. Greg Jones & the Rev. Robert Fruehwirth

Eucharist means “thanksgiving” in Greek. Just as Eucharist is the central act of Christian worship, a life of thanksgiving is what Christians are supposed to be about. In this class, Greg and Robert will explore a theology of thanksgiving from Scripture and Christian practice.

Believing Is Seeing

Providing background information on the Pauline body of writings, Rector Greg Jones explores how Saint Paul ‘invented’ theology — a systematic understanding of how God is working in the world in Jesus and Spirit as the defining mark, and generative ground, of beingChristian. It’s no longer race, ethnicity, class, or accomplishment that defines us or bonds us in community, but it is our submission to Jesus as Lord and the working of his spirit.
