Lesson

The dominant theme of the early church fathers was preaching the cross as the victory of God over the forces of evil. The Christus Victor theory emphasizes how all of creation is freed from bondage when Satan is defeated. The satisfaction theory deals with the problem of guilt. Be careful to not drive a wedge between God and Jesus. The grief of the father is as important as the death of the son. Christ’s death is a victory over the power of evil. (Ppt 5)
