Providence in Christ's Death

From Series: Intended For Good

Acts 2:23, Acts 4:28  (ID: 3058)

The death of Jesus was an act of great injustice, but the Bible tells us that it also happened according to the plan and purpose of God. In this message, Alistair Begg examines the crucifixion in light of the doctrine of providence from the perspective of God the Father, the Lord Jesus, and the human participants. Although it is a mystery that we cannot fully understand, the injustice of the crucifixion accomplished God’s plan to demonstrate the breadth of His love by redeeming sinners.


23this Jesus,4 delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men.

28to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place.
