Then John recognized Jesus saying, "'Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!'" (Jn 1:29). "The Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world" (1Jn 4:14). "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" (1Co 5:21). He "was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification" (Ro 4:25). He was "offered once to bear the sins of many" (Heb 9:28). "He died to sin once for all" (Ro 6:10) and "condemned sin in the flesh" (8:3).
It was "through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death" (Heb 2:14). He "canceled out the certificate of death" (Col 2:14). "'The Root of David, has overcome'" (Rev 5:5). "God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol" (Ps 49:15). "'He has redeemed my soul from going to the pit, and my life shall see the light'" (Job 33:28). Jesus said, "'I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and have the keys of death and Hades'" (Rev 1:18). "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses" (Eph 1:7). Therefore, "consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus" (Ro 6:11). "We have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men" (1Ti 4:10).
