  2. In episode TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY-ONE, Mike, Wade, and Jason discuss theology by twos (law and gospel, theology of the cross and theology of glory, two kinds of righteousness, two kingdoms, etc.).
  3. It’s the Cross, Stupid. In this episode, we discuss how God makes a theologian of the cross, how the theology of glory infiltrates churches and their doctrine, and how the cross of Christ reveals the truth about human history.

  11. Paul wants us to see this “present evil age” is dominated by a theology of glory and “the age to come” is dominated by a theology of the cross. They are two ways of understanding and interpreting all of reality, but especially the ways and nature of God.
