This teaching begins by going back to the Old Testament to see man’s Fall and his inability to pay the legal penalty necessary for salvation from the consequences of that Fall. It shows how God, because of His justness and mercy, planned how to provide a legal solution – someone completely innocent who would give his life as a ransom, paying to overcome the sin nature. It talks about what God did to temporarily cover man’s sin until the Messiah could come and then shows how, in Romans Chapter 4, God puts to rest all arguments against His righteousness. The teaching closes with “what” we’re to believe in order to accept and receive the wholeness Christ made available.
