47. THE CROSS-BEARING SAVIOUR

—Read the entire chapter
foretells of Jesus being nailed to the cross
Psalm 22:16 ESV
16 For dogs encompass me; a company of evildoers encircles me; they have pierced my hands and feet—
foretells of the sufferings of Jesus

NO ONE CAN FULLY UNDERSTAND THE SUFFERINGS WHICH JESUS BORE FOR US AS SINNERS

II. THE CROSS MEANT SEPARATION

(Jesus had all the sins of the world upon Him, and God could not look upon His Son, because God cannot stand sin)

III. THE CROSS MEANT SALVATION

A. He suffered for our transgressions (sins)—I

Isaiah 53:5 ESV
5 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.
(Your sins and my sins helped to kill Jesus)

B. Bore the sins of many and made intercession (prayer) for the transgressor (sinner)—

Isaiah 53:12 ESV
12 Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.

C. “IT IS FINISHED”—

John 19:30 ESV

14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.

G. Salvation by the preaching of the cross—

Jesus died the worst death a person could die! The Bible says, Cursed is anyone who died on a tree (cross)—. Through His death we have life
