The Gospel Message: Who Is God? (Pt 3)

, by Christopher D. Hudson

And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

As we continue to learn about who God is and what He wants for us, we must spend time studying verses about Christ’s sacrifice. There is a chain dedicated to this in the Thompson Chain Reference Bible so that we can easily find all of the verses that speak directly of Jesus’s sacrifice for us. The chain starts with a prophecy in Isaiah, and it ends with the culmination of Jesus’s purpose in Revelation.

Christ’s Sacrifice (Chain #3366)

Is 53:4 Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.

Jn 15:13 {“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends.

Jn 18:14 It was Caiaphas who had advised the Jews that it would be expedient that one man should die for the people.

2 Co 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.

Ga 1:4 who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,

Ep 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Tit 2:14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.

He 9:26 for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

1 Pe 3:18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit,

1 Jn 3:16 By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.

Re 1:5 and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood.

This month's study was inspired by the news that the Thompson Chain Reference Bible is being released in the ESV version of the Bible for the first time in May. Read more about it here. Because of my love for the Thompson, my company (Hudson Bible) worked with the Kirkbride to help them bring the ESV Thompson to print!
