What is salvation?

Salvation is a complex issue, which many people try to simplify by saying: “We know for sure that we are saved when we trust in the work of Jesus on the cross.”

The Orthodox Understanding of Salvation: As witnessed by the Apostles (especially St. Paul) and in the Early Church’s understanding (and subsequently in the Orthodox Church’s understanding) it was not just the work of Jesus on the Cross that brought salvation, but the whole “Christ Event”. In other words, it was God’s Incarnation in Jesus Christ, His teaching, His miracles, His Passion and Crucifixion and finally His Resurrection and Ascension to Heaven which brought salvation. He took humanity, joined it to His Divinity, lived a sinless life thus defeating sin in the flesh, He died on the Cross and rose from the dead, thus defeating death through death and perfected humanity in Himself through the perfection of His own humanity through the Resurrection. He finally glorified humanity by ascending to Heaven where He is seated at the right hand of the Father as God the Son but still united to humanity. By joining ourselves to Him we also become “partakers of Divine nature” (2Pet. 1:4). Salvation is brought to us through our participation in God’s life through Jesus Christ. It is not just a boasting or a declaration, but a way of life which reflects the teaching and life of Christ.
