Meaning of ChristÕs Death
Just what did the Son of
God accomplish by his death upon the cursed tree? How did he obtain eternal
redemption for us by the sacrifice of himself? The Word of God speaks about
the death of Christ in these four distinct ways.
- He made a
substitutionary sacrifice for his elect, dying in our room and stead (2
- He made propitiation
for our sins, satisfied the justice of God for every sinner for whom he
died (Romans 3:23-26).
- He redeemed
(delivered) us from the curse of the law (Galatians 3:13).
- He effectually
secured the everlasting salvation (the blessing of Abraham, the gift of
the Spirit) for his ransomed ones (Galatians 3:14).
