An event every week that begins at 9:30 AM on Sunday, repeating until December 18, 2022

Forum Hour with Prof. Randall Zachman
Why Did God Become Human?

At the heart of the Christian faith is the confession that the eternal Son of God became human, and suffered and died on the cross, in order to reconcile the world to God. However, there has never been an authoritative interpretation either of why this happened, or of how the death of Christ reconciles the world to God. This fall, we will explore these questions with the help of representative theological voices from the Christian tradition, both to come to an appreciation of the wide range of answers that have been given to these questions, and also in order to provoke our own responses to the question of why God became human.
