with Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Propitiation Sunday, December 15, 2019
Romans 3:25 - Jesus saves sinners! But how are we redeemed in Christ and why did it have to happen in that way? In Romans 3:25, Paul says that God was a “propitiation” for our sins in order to declare His righteousness to us. Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones explains that this word means to appease and avert anger or wrath. The cross of Jesus Christ was needed to appease God’s wrath. Propitiation implies four things: an offense to be taken away, an offended person who needs to be pacified, a guilty person, and a sacrifice of making atone for the offense. Also in this message, Dr. Lloyd-Jones warns about various translations of the Bible. Many who have translated this specific passage have misplaced the word “propitiation” with “expiation,” giving the verse a completely different context. This happens because personal prejudices can sway the translations. In either case, it is to be clear that the Lord cannot have a personal relationship with man when there is sin present. This is the reason that Christ had to be the ultimate sacrifice to pay the atonement for our sins.
