 Provision for Salvation - Part 2 
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:5-6) 

“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." (1 Peter 2:24)
“Jesus. . . said, it is finished" (John 19:30).
 
“The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin." (1 John 1:7)
 
“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit." (1 Peter 3:18)

“And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering often-times the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God. . . And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering of sin." (Hebrews 10:11-12, 17-18)

Jesus did not say, "I am finished," but, "It is finished." Jesus had left heaven with a mission to fulfill. Jesus spoke of that mission when he said, "The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which is lost." (Luke 19:10) Again Christ said, "For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom from many." (Mark 10:45) The cross signaled Christ's mission was complete. The redemption price for mankind had been paid in full. Christ's mission to give himself as sacrifice for sin had been accomplished. There was nothing else to be done. It was finished. It is because of that, Christ can sit down at the right hand of God. There is no further need of sacrifice for sin. Our Savior's sacrifice has already paid the full penalty for sin.
“Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law." (Romans 3:28)
 
“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." (Romans 4:5)
 
“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Corinthians 5:21)
“And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time." (1 Corinthians 15:4-8)

“Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” (Romans 1:3-4)

The message that turned the first century world upside down (Acts 17:6) was the Apostolic witness to the resurrection. Christ's resurrection turned what looked like defeat into victory. The resurrection of Christ allowed the early believers to know peace in the midst of persecution. The Christians could face down death because their faith was in the one who once said, "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." (John 11:25) Those words were backed up by an empty tomb. The resurrection was God's seal of authenticity upon the person and work of Jesus Christ. Jesus can be trusted because he keeps his promises. Jesus can be trusted because he is the Son of God, and he has the power to prove it!
