The Cornerstone Of The Gospel Is Christ’s Death And Resurrection.

Jesus’ final words on the cross were “It is finished!” This can be translated several ways.

  • “It is made an end of.”
  • “It is paid.”
  • “It is performed.”
  • “It is accomplished.”

What was made an end of? Our sins and the guilt that accompanied them.

What was paid? The price of redemption.

What was performed? The righteous requirements of the law.

What was accomplished? The work that God had given Jesus to do.

What was finished? Satan’s stronghold on humanity (see Colossians 2:14–15).

Paul puts the gospel in a nutshell: Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, He was buried, and He rose again the third day (see 1 Corinthians 15:3–4).
