What Happened at the Cross?
Understanding the Doctrine of the Atonement
Sundays, through September 29
9:45-10:45 a.m. in Stewart Hall
In many ways, the death of Jesus Christ upon the cross stands at the center of the Christian
faith. However, there hasn’t been consensus throughout the history of the church regarding how Christians should understand
exactly what happened at the cross. During this three-week series, we will explore a variety of ways that Christians
have interpreted the death of Christ and its significance for our faith today. We welcome Dr. Jennifer McNutt,
Associate Professor of Theology and History of Christianity at Wheaton College, who is also an ordained pastor
in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
