How Jesus Saves: An Evening with Dr. Josh McNall

Free Community Event
The fact that “Jesus saves” is perhaps the most basic claim of Christianity. Theologians and scholars refer to the way Jesus saves us as the atonement. The follow-up question—How does he save?—demands the attention not just of theologians but of every Christ follower. How exactly does a brutal and shameful crucifixion bring salvation? Why does the Bible call it good news, and why should we?
In How Jesus Saves, Dr. Josh McNall—OKWU professor and host of the podcast Outpost Theology—answers common questions and resolves misunderstandings that many people have about the atonement. You’ll explore questions like:
- If Jesus conquered death, why doesn’t it look like it?
- How could an innocent person justly pay the penalty for the guilty?
- Why couldn’t God simply forgive apart from the cross?
- Doesn’t following Jesus’ sacrificial example actually enable abuse?
Through Scripture, story, and real-life applications, McNall addresses this great Christian doctrine with simplicity without sacrificing the nuance it demands.
