The incarnate Jesus purposed more than 2000 years ago to fulfill His role on earth and voluntarily submit to suffer, die, and take upon Himself the sins of the entire world. This was the Passion of Jesus Christ. Jesus was mocked and ridiculed, spat upon, beaten with fists and whips, His back ripped to ribbons, His brow bruised and bloody from the crown of thorns pressed into His flesh, nailed to a cross and condemned to a most brutal and agonizing death, physically and spiritually. All for us. And He is alive today and forevermore.
As the author states at the conclusion of Chapter 6, Jesus felt upon His shoulders the weight of all the sin of fallen mankind and the wrath of His Holy Father. It is impossible to separate the Doctrine of Redemption from the Savior s Passion week of torture and death.
