Jesus, the Sin of Men and the Righteousness of God

Richard Hooker helps us to remember the significance of the cross of Christ:

“Such are we in the sight of God the Father, as is the very Son of God himself…It is our wisdom and our comfort; we care for no knowledge in the world but this, that man hath sinned and God has suffered; that God hath made himself the sin of men, and the righteousness of God.”[1]


[1] quoted by John Stott, The Cross of Christ, p. 197.
