  • Introduction
    Lawyers in court frequently deny allegations brought against their clients.
    If they admit the charge, then they try to justify it.
    They plea ignorance, accident, self-defense, temporary insanity.
    Jesus however
    Christ does not enter a plea of innocence for sinners. He does not appeal to justice. He never reflects negatively on the law or the Lawgiver. He offers no excuse.

    He openly acknowledges His client’s sin without giving mitigating circumstances. He commends the law, admits the court’s claims against His lawbreaker, and confesses the accused’s guilt.

    He pleads that the penalty has been pre-paid. He has already paid the price for this sin—every sin—at Calvary.

    Romans 3
    Romans 3:25 ESV
    whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.
    Isa 53
    Isaiah 53:5–6 ESV
    But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

    Jesus was uniquely qualified to be our propitiation

    Necessary

    Hebrews 12:24 ESV
    and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
    Isa 53
    Hebrews 10:4 ESV
    For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
    Romans 5:12 ESV
    Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—
    Rom
    Hebrews 10:18 ESV
    Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.

    Indirect

    Isaiah 53:5–6 ESV
    But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

    Sufficient

    Romans 5:21 ESV
    so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    2 Corinthians 5:21 ESV
    For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
    2 Cor 5:
    Some believe the do not need God - Didn’t ask for it - Don’t want it
    What they must realize is that
    Sin cries out for justice and vengeance by God
    Propitiation turns away wrath because, though sin cries for vengeance, Christ blood cries louder for mercy
    1 John 2:1 ESV
    My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

    Jesus is not our Mediator, Intercessor, or Advocate if we do not believe He is God’s Son,
