This is a great question! I will use it on my program. Here is the thing: If Jesus was the Passover Lamb, (and He said He was), then there could NOT be any sin placed on him for removal. Yes, there were sacrifices for that, but not the Passover Lamb. This is why Jesus said His work was over before He died. (John 17)

Jesus suffered, Jesus was tortured, Jesus died for our sins. It was His Blood,pure and sinless Blood that saved us. That is the ones that He has chosen before the foundation of this world. He was raised from the dead. He went down into hell and bragged to the demons that their evil schemes did not work.. He assended into heaven and He sent back His holy spirit to dwell in each born-again believer. Jesus is interceding for His people and their sins constantly. Now, this is the God in which I serve.

Biblically we know that the "life" is in the blood. Jesus shed his blood(willingly gave his blood up) for us. Therefore we understand that he paid for our sins by giving up his life(blood) for us. For example when a person sheds his coat that doesn't mean someone jerked it off of him it means he willingly took it off and praise the Lord Jesus willingly died for us. Thank you thank you JESUS!!

Remember though that we need to let his word guide us and not just go out and do as we like. Romans 6:1-3. We need to be free in Christ through our Love to him and to those around us. This is the Secret. Jesus said my word is spirit and is life. Always remember this! God Bless!

Your right Helen...The debt has been paid in full.By Jesus' death on the cross we have been justified.Being justified by faith alone in Christ alone we are accepted by GOD and by His Grace we have everlasting life.

tom: Would you be beaten half to death and then nailed to a cross if it would save the world?

Jesus paid for our sins in full on the Cross. When Jesus cried from the Cross "It is finished" the work for redemption of mankind was finished. The curtain in the temple was torn and the way was open to "whosoever will". Are you trusting Jesus for your salvation? If not, then put your trust totally in Him today.

His physical death was payment for sin in fulfillment of the condition of His word concerning wages of sin. " The wages of sin is death". The duration is irrelevant. The three days were simply a sign to "a wicked and adulterous generation" seeking a sign. Three minutes would have sufficed. Only His death could have atoned for the sins of man, He died, debt paid, condition met.

The shedding of His blood paid for our sins.
In the old testament, everytime someone sinned, they had to get their best animal and slaughter it as a sacrifice unto God, they shed it's blood.
When Jesus went to the cross, he was the ultimare sacrifice for our sins, He shed HIS blood so we wouldn't have to slaughter our best animal and shed their blood.

there are currently four definitions used to define the atonement doctrine.now,sin is not transfreable nor did God send his son to be tortured and killed to calm his anger and call it even so that mankind can continue to live.jesus came to reveal the Father(revelation to his children ).

Sandy ,have you ever been half beaten to death, and then nailed to a cross?because someone else did something and you had to die to pay the price for their mistake?

I think our faith should be in Jesus Christ directly and not a theory about how He saves us.
---Jack on 7/23/06


He also suffered, in a sense, separation from the Father ("My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?") That's what would happen to us if we died in our sins. I'm sure that was horrible for Him... worse, than we could possibly understand.

Sandy.#2.2 Corinthians 5:21 states: "For He hath made Him to be sin for us Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him."As He gave up His spirit, He said,"Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit." His suffering was completed in our stead.

Jesus on cross said "It is finished"(John 19:30.He did not say "Im am Finished". Since this came before the 3 days in the tomb, it was his death that pay our sins.Not how long his body was dead.

Sandy.Jesus Christ was God in the flesh (John 1:1, 14). When Jesus died on the cross, His death was an infinite death because He was God, and therefore infinite and eternal. Jesus death was sufficient to pay for all the sins that have ever been committed (2 Corinthians 5:21).

It was His shed blood that substantiated our own cleansing from sin (1 John 1:7-9). As He hung there on the Cross, He took the sin burden of the whole human race upon Himself. "He became sin for us,"
