Devotional: Two Stories of Atonement

I will share two scriptural stories not usually considered to be Atonement-related, which, when read through this lens, come alive in new and meaningful ways. The first is an unusual interpretation of the parable of the good Samaritan offered anciently by Origen, an early church Father. The second is the story told in John 21 of the post-resurrection appearance of Jesus to Peter and several other disciples at the Sea of Tiberias.
