But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.

- Isaiah 53:5

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree.

- Galatians 3:13

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.

- I Peter 3:18

 



How is God's justice glorified, rather than passed by, in the gospel proclamation of salvation by faith in Christ?

When true believers are freely justified, this does not mean that God forgets, overlooks, or passes by, their sins. Every sin they commit must be fully paid. All the sins of God's people are paid for by way of substitution. The infinite payment of Jesus Christ is applied to their accounts. This truth is pictured in the sketch below.


    Prior to the Passover night in Egypt, the Israelites were required to kill a lamb with no blemish, without breaking any of its bones, The blood from this lamb was to be placed upon the doorposts of their homes.

    When the angel of death passed through the land that night, only the first born who were behind the blood of the lamb were spared. The rest of the firstborn died.


    To whom does the lamb point? What does the blood of the lamb picture? How does this scene portray justification by application of Christ's blood?
