Over at TheLAB is a good piece by my fellow-Queenslander Dave Evans on How Mark’s Use of the OT Contributes to His Christology. Mark’s use of the Old Testament, however, reveals a Christology that is “enigmatic and paradoxical” (Strauss 2014, 734), full of the reality of Jesus’ humanity and yet pointing to his divinity.

Hopefully, you are already listening to the Ask N.T. Wright Anything Podcast, if not, there are some videos available, like this one, where Justin Brierly asks Tom some questions about the atonement and sacrifice.
