2 Jesus paid the penalty for the sins of His people as a substitute for them. Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. Isaiah 53:4 6
3 A. Sacrifice (Heb 9:26; 1 Pet 1:18 19) B. Propitiation (Rom 3:25; Heb 2:17; 1 John 2:2; 4:10) C. Reconciliation (Rom 5:9 10; 2 Cor 5:18; Col 1:20) D. Redemption (Acts 20:28; 1 Pet 1:18 19; Rev 5:9) E. Conquest (Heb 2:14 15; cf. Col 2:15) For whom has Christ accomplished these things?
4 A. Christ has paid for the sins of every person who has ever lived, without exception. 1. Names: General, Unlimited, Universal 2. Proponents: Some Lutherans, Arminians, Amyraldians, Hypothetical Universalists (and others) B. Christ has paid for the sins of only those whom the Father chose and gave to the Son. 1. Names: Limited, Definite, Particular 2. Proponents: Reformed / Calvinistic Churches
5 A. Christ has paid for the sins of every person who has ever lived, without exception. Universalism B. Christ has paid for the sins of only those whom the Father chose and gave to the Son. Particularism
6 A. To whom should the Gospel be preached? To all people without exception B. For the forgiveness of whose sins is Christ work sufficient? Christ s work is infinitely sufficient due to the dignity of His person C. Who will finally be saved? The elect alone; i.e., only those who repent and believe the Gospel
7 A. To whom should the Gospel be preached? B. For the forgiveness of whose sins is Christ work sufficient? C. Who will finally be saved? D. Does the cross benefit the non-elect in any way? Without the cross, there would likely be no experience of common grace, of divine forbearance, or of a temporary stay of judgment
8 In whose place did Christ stand as a substitutionary sacrifice when He bore the full fury of His Father s righteous wrath against sin? Only those who will never bear that wrath themselves: the elect alone.
9 John 12:19 Look, the world has gone after Him. Did every individual without exception begin following Jesus? Romans 5:18 So then as through the transgression of the one there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through the righteousness of the One there resulted justification of life to all men.
10 Romans 5:18 So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. Are all people without exception justified by Christ s work? (see Matt 7:13 14, 23; Rev 21:8; cf. Rom 8:30)
11 Romans 5:18 So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. Just as Adam s actions affect all men who are united to him, so also Christ s actions affect all men who are united to Him. 5:18a: All men in Adam 5:18b: All men in Christ
12 John 12:19 Look, the world has gone after Him. Romans 5:18 So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. Universalistic language is not self-interpreting. Words like all and world must be properly interpreted according to their context, and in agreement with the entirety of biblical teaching.
13 The nature of the atonement determines the extent of the atonement. If we understand what Scripture says about what Christ accomplished, we will understand more clearly for whom He accomplished it. Three biblical arguments concerning the nature of Christ s mission and work that support the doctrine of particular redemption.
14 I. Trinitarian Particularism II. The Unity of the High Priestly Work of Christ III. Efficacious Atonement
15 All three Members of the Trinity are united in purposing to save a particular people
16 The atonement accomplished by the Son is inextricably rooted in the Father s purpose to save those whom He has chosen. John 6:38 For I have come down from heaven... to do... the will of Him who sent Me. John 10:18 No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father. John 17:4 I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.
17 Is the Father s saving will universal or particular? Has He chosen all, or some, for salvation? Romans 8:29 30 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined... and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified. Romans 9:22 23 What if God, willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? And He did so to make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory...
18 If... A. the Father s election is particular and not universal, and... B. the Father and the Son are perfectly united in their saving will and purpose, then... C. the Son s redemption must be particular and not universal.
19 It is unthinkable to believe that Christ would say: I recognize, Father, that your election and your salvific intentions terminate upon only a portion of mankind, but because my love is more inclusive and expansive than yours, I am not satisfied to die only for those you have elected. I am going to die for everyone. (Robert Reymond, Systematic Theology, 678)
20 The Father has chosen some, and the Son has come to do the Father s will. John 6:39 This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. John 6:37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me. John 10:15, 29 I lay down My life for the sheep.... My Father, who has given them to Me...
21 The Father has chosen some, and the Son has come to do the Father s will. John 17:2 You gave [the Son] authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, he may give eternal life. John 17:6 I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me. John 17:9 I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom You have given Me; for they are Yours.
22 If... A. the Son has come to do the will of the Father (John 6:38), and... B. the will of the Father is that the Son should give eternal life to all whom the Father has given the Son (John 6:39; 17:2), and... C. the Father didn t give Him the world, but only some out of the world, then... D. the redemption accomplished by the Son must be particular and not universal.
23 The Father has chosen to save some, and the Son has come to do the Father s will. Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man... [came] to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. Isaiah 53:12 Yet He Himself bore the sin of many... John 10:11 15 I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
24 The Father has chosen to save some, and the Son has come to do the Father s will. Acts 20:28... shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. Romans 8:32 33 He who... delivered Him over for us all,... Who will bring a charge against God s elect? Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her.
25 If... A. the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are perfectly united in their saving will and purpose, and... B. the Father has elected some, not all, and... C. the Spirit regenerates some, not all, then... D. the Son must redeem some, not all. Unity within the Trinity demands a particular redemption.
26 Christ intercedes for everyone for whom He died, and He died for everyone for whom He intercedes
27 In His work of atonement, Christ acts as the Great High Priest of His people. Hebrews 2:17 Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. Hebrews 9:11 12 Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, [and] entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle... through His own blood.
28 The high priest had two main duties: to offer sacrifice, and to make intercession. Leviticus 16:15 Then he shall slaughter the goat of the sin offering which is for the people, and bring its blood inside the veil and do with its blood as he did with the blood of the bull, and sprinkle it on the mercy seat and in front of the mercy seat. It was a twofold work the sacrificial slaughter and the intercessory sprinkling that accomplished atonement for Israel s sins.
29 The high priest had two main duties: to offer sacrifice, and to make intercession. Leviticus 16:15 It was a twofold work the sacrificial slaughter and the intercessory sprinkling that accomplished atonement for Israel s sins. The scope of the priest s sacrifice is identical to the scope of his intercession.
30 Accordingly, Hebrews identifies Christ s atoning work as priestly offering and priestly intercession. Hebrews 10:12 But He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God. Hebrews 9:24 For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us. The scope of Christ s sacrifice is identical to the scope of His intercession.
31 The scope of Christ s sacrifice is identical to the scope of His intercession. Romans 8:32 34 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God s elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
32 Key Question: Does Christ intercede for all without exception, or for the elect alone? If all, why are not all saved? Would God refuse the prayers of His Son, offered on the basis of His own precious blood? John 17:9 I ask on their behalf; I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom You have given Me; for they are Yours.
33 If... A. the scope of priestly offering is identical to the scope of priestly intercession, and... B. the scope of His intercession is not universal, but limited to those whom His Father had given Him, then... C. the scope of His offering is not universal, but limited to those whom His Father had given Him.
34 Christ s atonement effectively accomplishes what it sets out to do
35 If... A. Scripture says Christ died for all, which means every human being who has ever lived, and... B. not everyone receives the saving benefits of Christ s death, then... C. Christ died for all without exception in a provisional, or potential, sense.
36 If... A. Scripture says Christ died for all, which means every human being who has ever lived, and... B. not everyone receives the saving benefits of Christ s death, then... C. Christ died for all without exception in a provisional, or potential, sense.
37 All without exception vs. All without distinction John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. All without exception: World refers to every individual who ever lived, including those who were suffering in hell at the time of the incarnation All without distinction: World refers to people throughout the world without distinction; Gentiles as well as Jews
38 Provisional vs. Effectual 1 Peter 2:24 And He Himself [actually] bore our sins in His body on the cross...
39 Provisional vs. Effectual 1 Peter 2:24 And He Himself [actually] bore our sins in His body on the cross... Isaiah 53:5 But he was [actually] pierced for our transgressions; he was [actually] crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are [actually] healed.
40 Atonement Actually Atones Leviticus 4:20 So the priest shall make atonement for them, and they will be forgiven. Leviticus 4:26 Thus the priest shall make atonement for him in regard to his sin, and he will be forgiven. Leviticus 12:8 And the priest shall make atonement for her, and she will be clean. Leviticus 14:20 Thus the priest shall make atonement for him, and he will be clean.
41 Jesus death did not make sins forgiveable. It accomplished forgiveness. His atonement was not potential. It was efficacious.
42 Atonement Actually Atones John 1:29 Behold, the Lamb of God who [actually] takes away the sin of the world! Romans 3:25... whom God displayed publicly as [an actual] propitiation in His blood... Romans 5:10... we were [actually] reconciled to God through the death of His Son. Revelation 5:9 for You were slain, and [actually] purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. Matthew 1:21 She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will [actually] save His people from their sins.
43 God s saving purpose in the death of his Son was [not] a mere ineffectual wish, depending for its fulfillment on man s willingness to believe, so that for all God could do Christ might have died and none been saved at all....
44 The Bible sees the cross as revealing God s power to save, not his impotence. Christ did not win a hypothetical salvation for hypothetical believers a mere possibility of salvation for any who might possibly believe but a real salvation for his own chosen people....
45 His precious blood really does save us all; the intended effects of his self-offering do in fact follow, just because the cross was what it was. Its saving power does not depend on faith being added to it; its saving power is such that faith flows from it. The cross secured the full salvation of all for whom Christ died. (J. I. Packer, Saved by His Precious Blood )
46 If... A. Christ s atonement is inherently efficacious, and... B. not everyone will finally be saved, then... C. the extent of Christ s atonement must be limited to those who are eventually saved i.e., the elect.
47 If Thou hast my discharge procured, And freely in my place endured The whole of wrath divine, Payment God cannot twice demand, First at my bleeding Surety s hand, And then again at mine. (Augustus Toplady, From Whence This Fear and Unbelief? )
48 Three Options: A. Effective and Universal Problem: Hell would be empty (contra Matt 7:13, 23; Rev 21:8; etc.) B. Universal, but Ineffective Problem: Scripture does not teach an ineffective atonement C. Efficacious and Particular
49 Everyone Limits the Atonement A. Particularist: Limited Extent, Unlimited Efficacy B. Universalist: Unlimited Extent, Limited Efficacy
50 The Arminians say, Christ died for all men. Ask them what they mean by it. Did Christ die so as to secure the salvation of all men? They say, No, certainly not. We ask them the next question Did Christ die so as to secure the salvation of any man in particular? They say, No. They are obliged to admit this if they are consistent. They say, No; Christ has died so that any man may be saved if and then follow certain conditions of salvation....
51 Now, who is it that limits the death of Christ? Why you. You say that Christ did not die so as infallibly to secure the salvation of anybody. We beg your pardon when you say we limit Christ s death; we say, No, my dear sir, it is you that do it.
52 We say Christ so died that He infallibly secured the salvation of a multitude that no man can number, who through Christ s death not only may be saved, but are saved, must be saved, and cannot by any possibility run the hazard of being anything but saved. You are welcome to your atonement; you may keep it. We will never renounce ours for the sake of it. (Charles Spurgeon, Particular Redemption, NPSP, 4:135.)
53 1. Unbeliever: Trust in this perfectly sufficient atonement. 2. Believer: Rest in this perfectly sufficient atonement.
54 From whence this fear and unbelief? Hath not the Father put to grief His spotless Son for me? And will the righteous Judge of men Condemn me for that debt of sin, Which, Lord, was charged on Thee? (Augustus Toplady, From Whence This Fear and Unbelief? )
55 Complete atonement Thou hast made, And to the utmost farthing paid Whate er Thy people owed; How then can wrath on me take place, If sheltered in Thy righteousness, And sprinkled with Thy blood? (Augustus Toplady, From Whence This Fear and Unbelief? )
56 If thou hast my discharge procured, And freely in my place endured The whole of wrath Divine; Payment God cannot twice demand, First at my bleeding Surety s hand, And then again at mine. (Augustus Toplady, From Whence This Fear and Unbelief? )
57 Turn then, my soul, unto thy rest! The merits of thy great High Priest Have bought thy liberty; Trust in His efficacious blood, Nor fear thy banishment from God, Since Jesus died for thee. (Augustus Toplady, From Whence This Fear and Unbelief? )
58 1. Unbeliever: Trust in this perfectly sufficient atonement. 2. Believer: Rest in this perfectly sufficient atonement. 3. Believer: Preach this perfectly sufficient atonement.
