Peter J. Leithart » Blog Archive » Martyrological theory of atonement

Jesus had to die because that was the limit of faithful witness.  He carried the Father’s case to the cross, and because He had served faithfully as the Father’s witness, the Father pronounced a verdict of “righteous” at the resurrection, and made His righteous one Firstborn and Ruler.

If we developed that further, what would a “witness” theology of the atonement look like?
