Jesus in the Writings of Peter
Sabbath School Lesson 2017 Quarter 2 Lesson 8 Sabbath Afternoon
“Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed” (1 Peter 2:24, NKJV).
What does this text mean?
How did Jesus “[bear] our sins in His own body”?
How are we “healed” by His “stripes”?
Today’s memory text from the Remedy Bible version;
“He took upon himself our sinfulness (our terminal condition) and in his own person carried it upon the cross so that we could be freed from sin and live the right way—loving God and others more than ourselves. You have been healed by the Remedy procured by his painful ordeal.”
The lesson refers to Peter’s focus on “Christ’s suffering” and suggests that we model that “suffering”. How does this help? Which suffering?
The lesson also states that it “was God Himself, who came in human flesh and who lived and died so that we can have the hope and promise of eternal life.” It was, indeed, God Himself that lived and died, but not for the hope and promise of eternal life – it was for the revelation of eternal life, itself.
“Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” John 17:3.
