saying, "I have sinned by delivering up an innocent man to die." But they replied, "What is that to us? It is your affair!"
And for us it is truly a just sentence, for we are getting back what we deserve for our actions, but this man has not done anything wrong."
Which one of you can prove me guilty of sinning? If I tell you the truth, why do you not believe me?
2 Corinthians 5:21
God considered Christ to be sinful on our behalf, even though He never sinned, so that we could be considered right with God through Him.
For we do not have a head priest who is incapable of sympathizing with our weaknesses, but One [i.e., Jesus] who has been tempted in every way that we have, and yet without sinning.
For Jesus was a very suitable head priest for us [i.e., He meets our needs very well], because He was holy, innocent, without [moral] corruption, separated from sinners and [exalted] above the heavens.
so Christ also, who was once [for all] offered [as a sacrifice] to take away the sins of many people, will come back a second time, not to take away sin, [but] to provide salvation to those who are waiting for Him.
1 John 2:1
My little children [i.e., dear ones], I am writing this to you so that you will not sin anymore. But if anyone does sin, we have Someone to go to the Father on our behalf; it is Jesus Christ, the [only] righteous One.
1 John 3:5
But, you [should] know that Christ appeared [on earth] to take away [our] sins, and that there is no sin in His life [See II Cor. 5:21].
Ask God's blessing on people who persecute you, instead of cursing them.
