Beginning first with a response to a listener question regarding the deity of Jesus, Ray and Steve then move into the first segment in what will be a multi-part series.  In this series, they take a look at different theories of the atonement.

While that may sound less than exciting for many people, Ray and Steve try to present it in a way that is interesting and informative.  The different theories of the atonement (what does it mean that “Jesus died for our sins”?) have pros and cons, including the way that they cause us to view our Father.

In this first segment of the series, Ray and Steve look at the widely-held view among evangelicals, the Penal Substitution theory.
