The Whole Enchilada
During today's conversation on Back Porch Theology - the second in our "Wild About Jesus" series - we're going to dive deep into the Christological doctrine concerning our Savior's absolute deity and His perfect humanity, which is summed up in the term - hypostatic union. That fancy phrase dates all the way back to the Council of Chalcedon in 451 AD, where it was determined that the Son of God was of the exact same substance as God the Father, as well as being indisputably human simultaneously! That despite our Redeemer's habit of hugging on lepers and hanging out with disreputable sinners so as to save them, His compassionate relationship with flawed humanity in no way meant Jesus was a lesser form or diluted derivative of Yaweh. Dr. J.I. Packer says it best: He took humanity without the loss of deity. This truism is a foundational wall of biblical orthodoxy, y'all so please grab a cup of coffee and your Bible - unless you're driving or hand-painting quail eggs, of course - and come hang out on the porch with Ally, Dr. Howard and me!

Lisa Harper's Back Porch Theology

You're invited to hang out on Lisa Harper's back porch and enjoy conversations about all things Jesus, theological anthropology, biblical orthodoxy, Spanx, the merits of Tex-Mex and more!

We believe this podcast will help you dive deeper into God's word, understand that the gospel is great news for everyday life, not just when viewed in the light of eternity, and that God is for us, that He's always been in the process of redeeming our inherent value as imago Dei and restoring us into a vibrant, intimate relationship with Him.

And rest assured, this won't be a one-sided conversation because throughout the podcast, Lisa will be inviting friends, including some brilliant theologians and academics to join her in substantive but decidedly unstuffy segments. So come on, y'all grab some coffee or sweet tea and join us on the back porch!


My favorite!!

I learn so much from this podcast! I love Lisa Harper and the way she explains Scripture. I hope many people listen in and Holy Spirit would burn that fire of reading the Word and getting to know God in a deeper way! ️

Thank you

I look forward to your podcast every week. I feel like you and Ally and Dr Howard are my friends, even though I'll probably never meet you. You have challenged me and brought new life into the scripture for me. You all can make me laugh and cry in the same episode. I also have the same desires to be all that God has created me to be and to fall more deeply in love with Him as I go about my days.Blessings to you all, Yvonne from Lancaster, Pa
