Foundations of Faith and Mission

A Roundtable Discussion Series

Foundations Session 4: What Did Christ Do?

Understanding Jesus’ role in our salvation is central. We’ll discuss his sacrifice for us, his resurrection, and why his authority is crucial to our task today.


The unit on Redemption expounds on Jesus’ sacrificial work on the cross, his resurrection, ascension, and session. It elucidates how these doctrines are central to our salvation.

Discussion Questions

  • What is the biblical teaching on the atonement?
  • How should we differentiate between the active and passive obedience of Christ? Why is that distinction important?
  • Why is the ascension critical to missions?
  • Why is it important that Jesus possesses “all authority”? What does that mean for our interaction with human authorities?
