The Atonement

In John

Our study of the 4 gospels concludes with a focus on the Cross. Why did Jesus have to die? How is the death of Jesus involved in our salvation? Was the Father persuaded to forgive at the Cross? Was our legal standing changed at the Cross? Was the wrath of God poured out on Jesus at the Cross? Many, many questions that are all tremendously important. The Cross is to be the “science of the ages” which would suggest that there is a tremendously deep meaning that we have not yet fully understood. One thing is clear: our understanding of the death of Jesus is critically important to our picture of who God is and “eternal life is to know God.” (John 17:3)
