It was the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, that Jesus Christ would give His life to justify the many. From the beginning of creation, God knew He would have to send His son to save a fallen people. It was Christ who took the death that was a result from our sin. However, death could not hold Him down. On the third day after the crucifixion, Jesus arose from the grave. Death and sin would be forever defeated to those that would believe.
