Show Summary Details


The chapter explains the doctrine of God's saving action in the Crucifixion that bring Jesus's life to its end and that it is God who ordains the particular end. That the Man for Others died rather than seek his own kingdom settles that he is the Man for others and so determines the salvific import of the message that he lives as Lord.
