Smythe is the preaching and writing site of Peter Smythe. Here you'll find a stout gospel, one that emphasizes the believer's identification with Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection, and life in the Spirit.

Handing Over the Son

IMG_0004.JPG
That God ‘hands over’ his Son forms part of the most unheard of affirmations in the New Testament. We must understand the expression to “hand over” in its proper meaning, without diluting it to a mere ‘mission’ or ‘gift.’ . . . The Christ was deliberately given over by the Father to a deadly destiny. God rejected him and delivered him to the death-dealing powers, . . . the Christ is the accursed of God. . . . Here the theologia crucis comes to an expression in a way than which none more radical can be conceived.
