What did Jesus accomplish when He died on the cross?


INTRO

  • The offices of Christ: Prophet, Priest, and King.

  • The Works of Jesus Christ. His work on the cross.

  • Jesus died on the cross in place of sinners that He might purchase their freedom, reconcile them to God, and thereby satisfy the righteous demands of a holy and just God.

Substitution

Propitiation

  • On the cross, Jesus bore our sin and guilt.

  • Jesus faced the wrath of God in instead of us, and fully paid on our behalf the debt we owed.

  • Because God is holy and righteous, He cannot overlook sin, through the work of Jesus Christ, God is fully satisfied that His righteous standard has been met.

  • Through union with Christ, the believer can now be accepted by God and be spared His wrath.

  • Propitiation is Godward; God’s holiness is vindicated and satisfied by the death of Christ.

Propitiation means “averting the wrath of God by the offering of a gift.” It refers to the turning away of the wrath of God as the just judgment of our sin by God’s own provision of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. – Ligon Duncan

Redemption

  • The act of being set free from the bondage of sin. In NT times, the word conveyed being bought in the marketplace.

  • In regard to the bondage of sin, it conveys in the NT:

    • Being purchased

    • Being removed

    • Being set free

  • Redemption is sinward; mankind was in bondage and sin and in need of release from the bondage and slavery to sin.
