Transcript of In My Place Condemned
"Perceiving then that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by Himself."
"But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, ‘You know nothing at all. Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.’ He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation, and not for the nation only, but also to gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. So from that day on they made plans to put Him to death."
“The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, ‘Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!’”
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life."
“…it is better for you that one man should die
for the people
, not that the whole nation should perish.”
"He shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him."
(cf. 3:2, 8, 13; 4:4, 24, 29, 33; 16:21)
“How should we explain Jesus’ belief in the necessity of His death? How should we account for the fact that what drove Him on throughout His public ministry, as all four Gospels testify, was the conviction that He had to be killed? And how should we explain the fact that, whereas martyrs like Stephen faced death with joy, and even Socrates, the pagan philosopher, drank his hemlock and died without a tremor, Jesus, the perfect servant of God, who had never before showed the least fear of man or pain or loss, manifested in Gethsemane what looked like blue funk, and on the cross declared Himself God-forsaken? ‘Never man feared death like this man,’ commented Luther. Why? What did it mean?”
“All the prophets [foresaw] in spirit, that Christ should become the greatest transgressor, murderer, and adulterer, thief, rebel, blasphemer, etc., that ever was…for He being made a sacrifice, for the sins of the whole world, is not now an innocent person without sins. …Our most merciful Father…sent His only Son into the world and laid upon Him the sins of all men, saying: ‘Be thou Peter that denier; Paul that persecutor, blasphemer and cruel oppressor; David that adulterer; that sinner which did eat the [fruit] in Paradis; that thief which hanged upon the cross; and briefly, be thou the person which hath committed the sins of all men; see therefore that thou pay and satisfy for them.’ Here now cometh the law and saith: I find Him a sinner…therefore let Him die upon the cross.”
“…in that dark hour He had to realize to the full the divine reaction against sin in the race.”
“When man justifies the wicked, it is a miscarriage of justice that God hates, but when God justifies the ungodly [through the substitutionary death of His Son] it is a miracle of grace for us to adore.”
"So Jesus dies—and the wretched surprise, tragic irony, is that the nation perishes anyway. Not even A.D. 70 was the end of it. Six decades later the Bar Kochba revolt brought in the Romans again (A.D. 132-135). Jerusalem was razed to the ground. It became a capital offense for any Jew to live anywhere in the environs of Jerusalem. The leaders lost their place."
"God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God."
2 Corinthians 5:21
