BI500 Assignment 3

Is 1 Corinthians 15:28 similar to any other verses in asserting the subordination or submission of Jesus to God?


There are other verses that lead us to think, on the surface, that Jesus is subordinate to God in his being, but only if a few qualifications are met. If we think of God simply as God the Father, a unitarian model, and not, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a trinitarian model, the type of subordinationalism we default to would be ontological. We find this expressed in places such as 1 Cor 3:23; 11:3; and 8:5-6. Within a hierarchical structure we would be forced into adopting a dynamic monarchianism that would deny the unity, or a bi-theism that denies the exclusivity of monotheism.

REVIEW OF THE DRAMA OF SCRIPTURE BY CRAIG G. BARTHOLOMEW AND MICHAEL W. GOHEEN



In 1995 I found myself in Toronto, Canada at Second City with my family. The improv comedy group had a unique twist in that you could find yourself directly involved in the performance. If you weren’t back from intermission promptly, you would become part of the show and had to play your role in order to return as a spectator. This same twist is what you will discover in The Drama of Scripture by Craig G. Bartholomew and Michael W. Goheen.
