Horton Interviews McKnight About The King Jesus Gospel

Posted: November 8, 2011 in books, evangelism, gospel, Jesus, soteriology

The White Horse Inn has posted the audio of a really interesting and helpful interview with Scot McKnight concerning his new book, The King Jesus Gospel.  In the interview, Michael Horton pushes McKnight on a few issues related to McKnight’s definition of “gospel,” but it seems that both men are pretty close in much of their thinking.  At least for these two men, much of the debate seems to be related to how to go about framing the good (and saving) news regarding Jesus, Israel’s Messiah.

As McKnight keeps saying in the interview, the main point of his book is “Christology first, soteriology second.”  He is right when he notes that many Reformed Christians (whom he later terms “covenant soterions”) will find much to commend in his book, despite some points of divergence.
