Moreover, that position would have it that Christ did not really die, and that is not only unscriptural, but subversive of the whole plan of salvation. “Christ died for the godly” (Rom. 5:6). He was “put to death” in order “He that might bring us to God” (1 Pet. 3:18). If, therefore, the divine Son of God did not die, then there is no salvation for sinners. But Christ did die; “poured out his soul unto death” (Isa. 53:12), and his soul, thus poured out unto death, was as “an offering for sin” (Isa. 53:10), and consequently there is hope for sinners.
