Theology Tuesday: Jesus – A Curse?

Dr. Trevin Wax noted wisely:

Adam brought a curse on the world. Jesus bore the curse for the world.

Indeed, God loved Jesus while he bore God’s curse. John 10:17 “For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life.” Jesus died the death we should have died in order to take the law’s curse for us.  When Jesus died, death was defeated, judgment was exhausted, the law was fulfilled, the curse was crushed, and a lot of other good stuff too!

In this short article (click below), Dr. R.C. Sproul unpacks why it is important Christ became a curse on our behalf:
