  1. Tom Wright says that to understand the cross you need to look at the whole Bible. I say that to understand the Bible you need to look at the cross – that the cross is the key to understanding the Bible and not the other way around. And starting with the cross means bowing at the cross. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. The place where we begin is at the cross – we die with Jesus at the cross. Penal substitution therefore rests on no other idea – nothing except the power and grace of God to be understood. Whereas other concepts rest on it to be understood. I think that for Tom Wright’s gifts to be a blessing that this is key – that his ideas must begin and flow from the cross – and therefore come from Holy Spirit insight, not from intellect. A sign this has happened is they will be more accessible. Not because truth can’t be sophisticated and take great skill to describe accurately but because people can receive it when what they suspect it means is what it means. When it externalises what God has already shown them to be true in their experience.

    1 Corinthians 2:2
    For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
