The unit contributes to the DBT course by deepening the student’s understanding of the work of Christ at the cross for salvation. It focuses on providing the students with the resources to articulate the penal and substitutionary nature of Christ’s atoning work according to the teaching of Scripture.

The purpose of this unit is to give students confidence in articulating the Biblical testimony to Christ’s gracious sacrifice for sin and to equip them to answer various contemporary critical attitudes towards the theological significance of Christ’s saving work.
