Dan welcomes guest, John Launchbury, to discuss the vital question: why did Jesus have to die? They explore the meaning of the word atonement and consider the pros and cons of some of the main atonement theories. As they explore the key scriptural passages involved they find that the impact of the death of Jesus can be just as profound today as it was in the 1st century - and it's all about changing us rather than changing God!
We continue our introduction episodes by looking at the book of Numbers. It's actually not just about counting things, but instead it's about a journey through the wilderness and it says much about God's overarching care for his people to protect, preserve and remain true to his promises.
