“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
— 2 Cor. 5:21
Those striking words embody the Atonement of Christ, the essential doctrine of penal substitution. This critically important issue, the topic of our 2009 Faculty Lecture Series, will be dealt with in the fall issue of The Master’s Seminary Journal in the following articles:
Because of recent attacks on this crucial doctrine, we believe this will be one of the most important issues that the journal has ever published.

- “Penal Substitution in the Old Testament” by William D. Barrick
- “Penal Substitution in the New Testament: A Focused Look at First Peter” by Paul W. Felix
