Jesus Took Our Sins On Himself

“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (NKJV)
“Jesus took our sins on Himself; His death took the penalty that our sins deserved. And, wonder of wonders, God then credited the righteousness of Jesus to us! With sin paid for, there was no longer a barrier between human beings and God. With Jesus’ own righteousness credited to our account, we are welcome to enter God’s presence.” — Lawrence Richards, The Bible
“Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us had turned to his own way; but the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.” Isaiah 53:4-6 (NASB)
