The Death Of Christ As A Sacrifice by Jesse Hendley

THE DEATH OF CHRIST AS A SACRIFICE
Jesse M. Hendley
Romans 3:25

Will you turn with me now, friends, to Romans 3:25,
and we are studying today "The Death of Christ As a
Sacrifice."

But first of all, let me call your attention to this
word in Romans 3:25, where we read concerning Christ
Jesus, "Whom God hath sent forth to be a propitiation
through faith in His blood, to declare His righteous-
ness for the remission of sins of the past, through
the forbearance of God."

Now here we read of the remission of the sins of the
past. The great difference between the Old Testament
saints' forgiveness and ours is found here in two
Greek words. The Old Testament saints' sins were put
away temporarily, until Christ came and died. But ours
have been put away forever. We read of the remission
of sins that are PAST. The Greek word is paresis, and
paresis means "putting aside for future settlement, at
the death of Christ." So the Old Testament saints had
paresis, the putting aside of their sins till Christ
died to pay for them. But WE have aphesis, "a putting
away which is COMPLETE AND UNRESERVED FORGIVENESS." So
there is the difference between the Old Testament
saints and the New Testament saints, in the matter of
forgiveness. Of course, the Old Testament sins were
put away by the Cross of Jesus. But they lived BEFORE
the Cross, and through those blood sacrifices (for it
was impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to
take away sin) they had paresis, "the putting aside
for future settlement," until Christ died. But we,
looking BACK to the Cross of Calvary, have aphesis,
which means "a COMPLETE putting away of sin,
unreserved forgiveness."

Now let's take today one of the most amazing and
wonderful studies in the Bible, and that is "The Death
of Christ As a SACRIFICE.

You know, here in Romans 3:25 we read that God has set
forth Him to be a propitiation through faith in His
blood. Now there are two f ...
