Atonement through Substitution

Jesus died for you.  Through the last week of Jesus’ life we see a man who was arrested in place of the disciples, went on trial in place of Peter, was convicted in place of Barabbas, and died on the cross in your place.  In other words:  Christ died for us while we were yet sinners, that proves God’s love towards us.  In the name of Jesus Christ you are forgiven.
