  • Jn.1:29, Lamb ‘of God’ –
    • Priest is also sacrifice (sin-offering)
  • Ro.3:25-26, propitiation – a means of expiation (satisfaction)
sin justice demands satisfaction
Sin (justice) demands satisfaction



He gave Jesus as propitiationto satisfy justice.

Ro.3:25; Jn.1:29; 3:16; Hb.2:10

Christ’s death: propitiatory sacrifice

First effect: satisfies holiness/wrath

Sacrifice not necessary because God is disinclined to love sinners
