Chapter Summary

It is not difficult to discover in the Apostles’ teaching in the Gospels the notion of a right order or necessity to the work of our Lord. This idea of the necessity of the Incarnation and of the obedience of Christ, even unto death, is essential to the understanding of the doctrine of Atonement. The doctrine of Atonement is intrinsically bound up with the doctrine of Creation. There is a fitting and right order of justice embedded in creation which shows the nature of God’s work amongst men. This chapter examines the essential links between the Christian teachings of Atonement, Incarnation and Creation, It also examines certain passages in the Old Testament which begin to explore what the Bible’s teaching is on Creation. There is a goodness to Creation, certainly before man’s fall and even after. In numerous Biblical passages, we witness that nature continually serves God’s justice and goodness.
