Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 2:24


2:24 Who himself bore our sins - That is, the punishment due to them. In his afflicted, torn, dying body on the tree - The cross, whereon chiefly slaves or servants were wont to suffer. That we being dead to sin - Wholly delivered both from the guilt and power of it: indeed, without an atonement first made for the guilt, we could never have been delivered from the power. Might live to righteousness - Which is one only. The sins we had committed, and he bore, were manifold.

    Jacoba,another post you said "Jesus healed to prove he is the Son of God".Matthew 14;14(He healed to show his compassion)Matthew 8;8(the man called him"Lord" before God healed his servant)Mark 1;34(He healed many but would not let the devils speak after he cast them out because they knew who he was, he did not want the people to know},etc. His miracles were not to prove who he is.

    To BSP on loving the Bible - Love it? I don't read anything but - and books about the Bible, but not the Christian novels. I tried about 3 of those; I can't get into Biblical fiction; too boring. The word of God is - EXCITING!!! I love the story of Elijah and the prophets of baal; makes me laugh everytime I read it. And Balaam and his 'dumb' donkey. God's got a sense of humor.
