Redeemed for what purpose? In this final lesson, Dr. Young challenges a view of redemption that is limited to personal forgiveness. Yes–redemption includes forgiveness, but God’s purposes in rescuing and redeeming humanity are more grand in scope! In an article by Professor Howard Baker we will explore what it means to be Jesus’ disciples, sent into the world in the same way that Jesus was sent by the Father into the world. Dr. David Matthewson explores the roles of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to send and empower believers. Finally, Denver Seminary graduate, Tracey Bianchi, will encourage us with a reflection on what it means to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.Lesson Objectives
