A lot of people (I would venture to say almost all people) know that Jesus died on a cross. Those same people most likely know that there is at least a claim that He rose back to life after His death on the cross – a claim that they may or may not believe. But I wonder if people know what Jesus did whenHe died. What it just a miraculous death and resurrection, or was it more than that? Hebrews tells us that Jesus actually conquered death while making a propitiation (atonement, or in other words, payment) for our sins. Jesus gave himself over to death, but death could not hold Him – He fought death, and death lost. Now those who choose to trust in Jesus' sacrifice on their behalf have the promise of spending eternity with Him. Only Jesus did all of this, and only in Him can we trust.
You are here: / / What exactly did Jesus do? (Hebrews 2-4)
