Overview and Objectives
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.
When you complete this lesson, you should be able to do the following:
- Answer the question: What does God want His people to know about their identity?
- Explain the purpose of God’s people.
- Describe the significance of the Christian identity.
As you proceed through this lesson have the following question in mind.
The Bible presents the rather startling reality that God’s redemptive mission is accomplished through His people. How does this understanding impact you?
