A student asks what the vicarious atonement of Jesus means. In answering, we consider the demands of the law, biblical examples such as the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant, Abraham and Isaac, and (most importantly) Jesus and Barabbas. Recommended Bible passages are John 16 and 2 Corinthians 5:21.

In this episode, a student asks how there can be any personal responsibility without free will. How can you test to determine if we do, in fact, have a free will? What about all of the "choice" language in the Bible? What about considering life as one of discovery, not of decisions?
Any questions/challenge to this...
