    This may have been a compromise of sorts with the Christus victor book church leaders who held a different view. Furthermore, death, sin, and the Devil personalized forces in Christus Victorare overthrown since Jesus' subsequent resurrection breaks the dominion they once held over human life. This analysis lays bare the violent dimensions of satisfaction atonement, which can be camouflaged but not removed. But this answer is a quick survey of the question, it is in no way complete. By James M. By contrast, Christus Victor depicts Christ's sacrifice, not as a legal offering to God in order to placate his justice, but as the decisive moment in a war against the powers of darkness; the law included.

    Putting off His innocence and holiness and Christus victor book on your sinful person, He bore your sin, death, and curse; He became a sacrifice and a curse for you, in order thus to set you free from the curse of the Law. The fact is that both camps extracted their beliefs from the writings of the apostles and believed strongly that their particular interpretation was the correct one. Origen AD was a theologian from Alexandria, who was the first to enunciate this view. Question: "What is the meaning of Christus Victor?

    He must have satisfied their price — in this case, their punishment for their sins. Instead by suffering a death that, before the Christus victor book, meant an accursed status, Christ, instead of satisfying an obligation, overthrew the power of the Law, since its condemnation of a perfect man was unjust. This much is supported by Scripture. There is some disagreement and really no way to resolve it about whether primitive Christus Victor and the Ransom Theory were actually contemporary and if so, which came first.

Jesus is the ransom paid to Satan. Feudalism faded as nationalism and imperialism became dominant once again.

It becomes the root of our actions rather than a theological idea that is added onto our Christus victor book structure.

Again, if Christ himself is made guilty of all the sins that we have all committed, then we are absolved from all sins [ And in counterpoint to these emerging imperial ambitions, the idea of individual liberty and Christus victor book developed and started taking root.

Since Jesus would be a better prize, Satan accepted; we then become free Christus victor book his domination. Since Satisfaction Theory arose from the penance based system of Anselm of Canterbury, its focus is on Law.

Christian Theology: Second Edition. The book develops a two-part argument. Theologians attempted to reform the existing theories but just produced theological bedlam. It is therefore important that we at least spend a healthy amount of time discussing the topic.

In the Latin Church, as expressed by writers like Augustine and Ambrose, the term ransom is a metaphor. Satan accepted the offer, but after he took Christ into his possession in death, Jesus broke free and rose from the dead Heb.
