 The Fact of Salvation

Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the emphasis of the New Testament on salvation as an act of God fully achieved. God’s salvation is seen to be complete in the representative picture of Jesus, who embodies human destiny. This consensus then raises question: What he has done? Four possible types of answers are presented, and used to examine how the New Testament writers work out this fourfold scheme within the context of revelation, atonement, breaking sin’s power, inauguration, and solidarity or identification.

Keywords: salvation; revelation; atonement; sin; inauguration; solidarity; identification
