This thesis investigates the way in which the event of the cross, discussed throughout Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics, performs a significant role in several doctrines including the doctrines of revelation, God, Election and reconciliation, and is an essential aspect of Barth’s writings concerning Christology, pneumatology, and ethics. This thesis will focus particular attention to the short section of the Church Dogmatics IV, the Doctrine of Reconciliation, paragraph 59, “The Obedience of the Son of God,” section 2 titled “The Judge judged in our place.” Throughout the thesis Barth’s interpretation and use of the event of the cross will be compared to the thoughts of other theologians including Martin Luther and Jürgen Moltmann, among others. Critics who challenge Barth’s doctrine of reconciliation and the traditional theory of atonement will be analysed and responses will be formulated to these criticisms from the Church Dogmatics.
