One Man's Death

Joe Wall, Going For The Gold, Moody, p. 29

One might ask, "How could one man pay the penalty of eternal condemnation for so many sins by so many people in just a few hours on the cross?" He could do it for two reasons. Jesus was infinitely valuable and could take the place of an infinite number of people. And because He was infinitely righteous, He could pay the penalty for an infinite number of sins.
