The Stone Chapel Podcast
Hosted by David Capes
Matthew Bates, Gospel Allegiance
Dr. Matthew Bates, (PhD Univ of Notre Dame) is associate professor of theology at Quincy University in Quincy, IL. He is the author of several books and hosts a popular podcast along with Matt Lynch and others entitled “OnScript.” Dr. Bates joins David Capes to talk about his recent book, Gospel Allegiance: What Faith in Jesus Misses for Salvation in Christ (BrazosPress, 2019). Often the word pistis, translated most often “faith” in the New Testament, is misunderstood because our understanding of the gospel is deficient. So, what is the gospel? “Jesus is the saving king.” So, what is our response? Allegiance to the king.
