Hodge: the predicted atonement

Friday, April 29, 2011
    Feast of Catherine of Siena, Mystic, Teacher, 1380
    [Paul:] “Brothers, children of Abraham, and you God-fearing Gentiles, it is to us that this message of salvation has been sent. The people of Jerusalem and their rulers did not recognize Jesus, yet in condemning him they fulfilled the words of the prophets that are read every Sabbath.”
    —Acts 13:26-27 (NIV)
    That the death of Christ as an atoning sacrifice was predicted by the law and the prophets is the constant doctrine of the New Testament.
    ... Charles Hodge (1797-1878), An Exposition of the First Epistle to the Corinthians [1857], New York: Robert Carter & Bros., 1860, p. 313 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have fulfilled the promises You made of old.
