Abstract:

Jesus' Death in New Testament Thought is unlike anything written on the subject to date. It represents a radical break with the traditional models or "theories" of atonement based on ideas such as penal substitution, participation in Christ, and the Christus Victor motif, claiming that all of these ideas as commonly understood are foreign to New Testament thought. In particular, on the basis of his analysis of second-temple Jewish literature and its use of the Hebrew Scriptures, Brondo demonstrates that, in themselves, sacrifice, suffering, and death were not thought to make atonement for human sins. Instead, for Jews in antiquity, what atoned for sins and led people to be declared righteous in God's sight was their renewed commitment to living in accordance with God's will, a commitment that they expressed by means of their sacrificial offerings and their willingness to endure suffering and death out of faithfulness to that will. According to the thought of Jesus' first followers, in accordance with a divine plan conceived of before the ages, in Jesus God had sent his Son in order to establish around him a community of people fully committed to practicing the love, justice, solidarity, and righteousness associated with God's will for all. Jesus' dedication to this task led to confrontation and conflict with the powers and authorities of his day, who sought to silence him by having him put to death. Because he stood firm and remained faithful to that task rather than backing down from it, he was crucified on a Roman cross. Paradoxically, however, in this way he laid the basis for the existence of the community God had desired from the start, stamping it forever as one to which no one could truly belong without assuming the same firm commitment to Jesus and everything for which he had lived and died. Those who form part of this community, living out of faith under Jesus as their risen Lord, come to practice God's will as redefined through Jesus and on that basis are forgiven and accepted as righteous by God. Thus, by giving up his life out of love for others in faithfulness to the task his Father had given him, Jesus has attained the redemption, reconciliation, cleansing, and justification of those who now live under his lordship as members of the worldwide community of believers from all nations that God has established through him and his death, in fulfillment of the promises that God had made of old to his people Israel are being fulfilled. --
