“And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:5 And ye know that he - Christ. Was manifested - That he came into the world for this very purpose. To take away our sins - To destroy them all, root and branch, and leave none remaining. And in him is no sin - So that he could not suffer on his own account, but to make us as himself.
1Jo 3:5 Was revealed to take away our sins. Christ came, not only to take away our sins by their remission, but to take away our disposition to sin.
