God is Forgiving. Throughout Scripture, we find a God who is forgiving. “Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away” (Ps 65:3).
Scripture outlines severe penalties for those who sin.
The prophets often spoke about the coming forgiveness of God (Is 53:5; Zech 13:1).
In the New Testament, we find God’s acting for man’s forgiveness.
