Tense: Dealing with Uncomfortable Tensions in Scripture
Many Christians know and wrestle with the major tensions of the Christian Scriptures: Jesus as fully God and fully Man, we are simultaneously saints and sinners, and so on. I will attempt to outline a few less obvious ones and demonstrate why they are so important in the lives of Christians-particularly Christian men.
Dr. Joel Oesch currently serves Concordia University Irvine in the capacities of Professor of Theology and Director of Graduate Studies for Christ College. A graduate of Yale University and Concordia Seminary St. Louis, Joel’s primary research interests include: Postmodernism, Technology and Transhumanism, and the writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He has taught at CUI since 2021. Before his return to academia, Joel was the Director of Christian Education for congregations in Hawaii and Texas.
He lives with his wife of 15 years, Tiffany, and four young children in Laguna Hills, California.
