From the Show

By becoming a curse for us, Jesus bore the consequences of our sin. The sinless one became sin for us so that we could receive his righteousness.

What Does It Mean That Jesus “Became Sin” for Us?

Questions in this Episode

  1. I have not been too worried about the vaccine, but now that I am getting the vaccine I am beginning to be more concerned. I know you have said that it is not the Mark of the Beast, but can you give me Scripture as to why and how I am to know this for sure?
  2. What does it mean in 2nd Corinthians 5:21 that Jesus “became sin” for us?
  3. Should Christians be more involved in social issues like those who are more politically liberal?
  4. Did the Father really forsake Jesus on the cross?
  5. Why doesn’t God just open the heaven above and show himself to everyone at once so we know he’s real?
