The Elementary Principles of Christ Part 2

This was because Jesus accepted the sins of the world through the baptism which he received from John the Baptist; Matt.3:15. This baptism was because Jesus had to shoulder the sins of the world onto to cross, for this was the will of God, Isaiah 53:10. The reason for God sending him to this world was to bruise him because he was made sinful in his baptism. This love of God was emphasised by John, in 1 John 4:10, "Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins." By obeying the will of God, he laid down his majesty and power, the compassion of his disciples and the great welcome of his people, because a righteous way was made for him to accept all the sins of the world by being baptised, he died for us, Isaiah 53:6, "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." He opened a new way for us; Hebrews 10:20, " By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh." Jesus had to go through his baptism by John in order to satisfy the righteousness of God, whether people recognised it or not, because it was the desire of God the Father. He faced the accursed and terrifying death of the cross.

Because of God's will, he was silent in his suffering; Isaiah 53:7, "He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth." Although he was falsely accused, harshly beaten, plucked of his beard, and spat at for carrying the sins of the world passed onto him from John through his baptism, he remained silent. Also, because it was the will of the Father for him to be baptised and thus die, he died for the sake of those who believe. At the age of 30, he was judged for the sins of the world which he shouldered and crucified at the age of 33 to shed his blood. He rose again from the dead, and became the eternal Saviour for those of us who believe in this truth.
