The covering of a debt is always a blessing. This truth lies at the heart of the atonement and Jesus’ identity as the Lamb of God, Alistair Begg explains. The Lamb was expected by the Jews of Christ’s day—but when He arrived, He was despised and rejected. In His suffering, however, He bore our punishment. He alone provides atonement for our sin and satisfies the requirement of God’s holiness, enabling us to cry out in worship, “Worthy is the Lamb!”
1Who has believed what he has heard from us?1
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
