Description

This study will examine this issue in light of the centuries of debate about the subject, in order to more clearly ascertain the nature of the various soteriological implications that emerge. Theological exegesis of Romans 5:12–21 reveals significant doctrinal interconnectivity regarding the roles of our first parents and Christ as the Representatives of the human race—the core of the “Federal” View—with condemnation and death for all by birth in Adam, and justification and life for those receiving Christ’s gift. This representative conception seems to account best for the scriptural materials in light of the exegetical and systematic analysis—without excluding the contributions of other views but demonstrating their incompleteness in isolation. Taken in the broader context of the canon, it provides a means by which the respective roles of our first parents and Christ can be seen to have theodical significance in light of the Great Controversy. Bauer, Bruce Does Culture, Worldview, and Experience Impact How We Read and Interpret Scripture? This paper looks at how people’s culture, worldview, and personal experience shape their view of reality and also how they read and interpret Scripture. Rodrigo Galiza Eschatological Developments Related to the New Jerusalem in Light of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre It seems that most Christians understood the New Jerusalem and God´s physical presence eschatologically in a heavenly manner. However, with the Christianization of the Empire, there is a shift in perspective. “The” holy place is identified with the earthly Jerusalem. My Paper investigates this shift in eschatological interpretation in light of the construction of the church of the Holy Sepulchre comparing Origen and Eusebius of Ceasarea.
