All men are failures (Ps. 12:1). In many things we are all failures (Jas. 3:2). But such can never be said of Christ our Redeemer. Christ came to do the Father’s will: “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day” (John 6:38-39). Before Our Lord ascended back to Heaven He said: “I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do” (John 17:4). Still again on the cross our Savior declared: “It is finished” (John 19:30). Anyone who holds the redemptive work of Christ is “almost finished” denies Isaiah 42:4 and disputes the very words of our Redeemer. Such a person makes Jesus Christ a failure.
In this study the author examines the New Testament texts as to the purpose of Christ’s death. In this study he does not examine books of theology, but he looks at what the Bible actually says was the design of His death.
