Biblical Atonement

Let us note that the biblical idea of atonement is not just a concept of another person dying for our sins so we go free no matter what we do or no matter what kind of people we are. This is a common misperception. Yeshua, rather, is a representative-God and representative-man. As representative-God, He demonstrates the love of God and the suffering that God Himself experiences for the human race. God suffers our every sin and pain and yet desires to forgive. This is manifested most fully at the cross. As representative-man, Yeshua, in His loving identity with us, suffers what we would not suffer. He shows fully the destructive nature of sin, which seeks to destroy Him, the perfect man. When we believe in Him, we repent of our sins and identify with Him in such a way that He lifts our burden. To under His atonement we must be part of Him.
