Why must Christ obey the law? What have the categories of active and passive obedience of Christ traditionally meant? Why is active obedience so essential to imputation and union with Christ? Why has the death of Christ overshadowed other indispensable aspects of his work? What are some of the practical and pastoral implications of Christ’s active obedience?

In this episode of the Credo podcast, Matthew Barrett is joined by Brandon Crowe to consider how Christ’s entire life of obedience relates to our salvation.

Brandon Crowe is Associate Professor of New Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary and book review editor for the Westminster Theological Journal. He has a PhD from The University of Edinburgh, and in 2012, his dissertation was published and is entitled, The Obedient Son: Deuteronomy and Christology in the Gospel of Matthew. He is the author of numerous books, including Last Adam: A Theology of the Obedient Life of Jesus in the Gospels
