Jesus Our Substitute

From Series: Jesus 101

Luke 22:39-46 (ID: 2343)

Jesus’ prayer in Gethsemane presents a picture of a man in deep distress. He was tormented not only by the prospect of death, as Alistair Begg notes, but also because He was about to be “made sin.” Though innocent, by taking on our sin He would also bear the punishment for it. With Christ’s innocence as our own, there is nothing we can do to improve our position with God. We can only live our lives as a sacrifice.
