He Became a Curse for Us -- Galatians 3:13

Kevin DeYoung posted this video from R.C. Sproul, explaining the deepest meaning of Good Friday.

"Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written,"Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree..." (Gal. 3:13)

"Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (Matt.27:45-46)

" Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them,... For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Cor. 5:18, 21)
