Join us for an exploration of Christ's work of the redemption and salvation of humanity, from an Orthodox perspective.

The annual  unity conference this year is hosted by :

[ Victoria Park & 401 ]

45 Hallcrown  Place, North York, ON M2J 4Y4

Phone: (416) 493-8122.    http://stmarytoronto.com

 

We hope to discuss some of the following imperative theological questions:

-     How do we understand Christ's death on the cross?

 as Orthodox and according to the early church tradition

- Did Christ "pay the price of our sins" (i.e. atonement)? If so, to whom? If not, why would He have to die?

- How is "sin" to be understood, as a legal reality or an ontological truth? How does this affect our understanding of the incarnation?

- Can one make sense of biblical phraseology (i.e. ransom, exchange, sacrifice, etc.) in the absence of penal substitionary theory?

- Why does any of this matter?

 

The speakers include :

1. Dr. George Habib Bebawi, Director Emeritus of the Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies at the University of Cambridge, UK

2. Pr. Richard Schneider, Program Co-Director of the Orthodox School of Theology at Trinity College, University of Toronto

3. Bavly Kost, MA. Almnus, St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary
