Verse of the Day (August 22, 2020)

Verse of the Day (August 22, 2020) #BMSeminary – {He who did not spare His own Son} God the Father has given fallen mankind His best. He will not leave believers now nor give them less (cf. Joh 3:16; Rom 5:8). How off target is the concept of a vindictive OT God and a loving Jesus! This ultimate gift is reflected in God’s statement to Abraham in Gen 22:12; Gen 22:16. The rabbis used this OT passage to support the doctrine of substitutionary atonement for Abraham’s seed. {but delivered Him over for us all} The word “all” in this text is significant. Jesus died for the sins of the world (cf. Luk 2:10-11; Joh 3:16; Joh 4:42; Joh 11:51; 1Ti 4:10; 1Jn 2:2; 1Jn 4:14). It reflects the Adam-Christ typology of Rom 5:12-21. Jesus’ death solved the sin problem. Now it is a “believe and receive” problem. {freely give us all things} This verb is from the Greek root for grace. “All things” refers to Rom 8:17. See note at Rom 3:24. [You Can Understand the Bible by Dr. Bob Utley]
