Christ Crucified: Understanding the Atonement

Christ Crucified: Understanding the Atonement
The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is presented in all four New Testament Gospels, and occupies considerable space in the overall narrative. The very clarity of this emphasis on the cross presents us with a serious challenge. How could the life, let alone the death, of one man in a far-off country 2,000 years ago be the salvation of the human race? How could his blood avail for me?

The biblical explanation is that the crucified one was no mere man. He was the Son of God, acting and suffering in cooperation with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. This is the primary answer to 'the scandal of particularity'. The death of this one person has univeral, inclusive and cosmic significance, because in him the Creator acts and suffers. Furthermore, there is the special relationship between Christ and humanity: he was 'with' us and he was 'for' us. As Donal Macleod's excellent exposition demonstrates, the grandeur of the cross lies in the fact that here the incarnate Son of God offered himself in our place, bearing the penalty for our sin. The cross achieved expiation, propitiation, reconciliation, justification, redemption, forgiveness and victory. No single one of these tells the whole truth, nor do all of them together (at least as understood by us) exhaust the meaning of the cross - yet neither do they merely present its many-sidedness. Macleod shows that these concepts are interrelated and interdependent, and that together they give a coherent picture of the salvation wrought by Jesus at Calvary.
