Sacrifice of Christ

Each month, we will be highlighting a particular theological topic here at the BLB blog. This month, we are highlighting the topic of soteriology—the doctrine of salvation through Jesus Christ. The following is adapted from the commentaries of F.E. Marsh, coming soon to the BLB.

Here are 6 statements pertaining to the sacrificial work of Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins.

This was a…

…Necessary Sacrifice.

 “For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and [as a sacrifice] for sin, condemned sin in the flesh.”
(Romans 8:3 KJV)

Offered Sacrifice.

 “He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily…since he did this once for all when he offered up himself.”
(Heb. vii. 27).

Removing Sacrifice.

“But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.”
(Hebrews 9:26)

Perfect Sacrifice. 

“But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God”
(Hebrews 10:12).

Accepted Sacrifice. 

“And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
(Ephesians 5:2)

Substitutionary Sacrifice. 

“Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.”
(1 Corinthians 5:7)
