Lord’s Day Quote: John Calvin

To take away our condemnation, it was not enough for him to suffer any kind of death:  to make satisfaction for our redemption a form of death had to be chosen in which he might free us both by transferring our condemnation to himself and by taking our guilt upon himself.  If he had been murdered by thieves or slain in an insurrection by a raging mob, in such a death there would have been no evidence of satisfaction.  But when he was arraigned before the judgment seat as a criminal, accused and pressed by testimony and condemned by the mouth of the judge to die – we know by these proofs that he took the role of a guilty man and evildoer.

John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion
