In the OT God provided a way for His people to redeem their sins through burnt offering and sacrifices. In a way to demonstrate His grace and love for His people, and to give a glimpse of His salvation plan.
The circumstances in which Jesus was crucified is not as an offering to redeem anyone's sin. Instead it was intended as a punishment although for false accusations. How did Jesus' death on the cross turned out to become a sacrifice to redeem sins?
While on the cross Christ pleaded the Father to forgive us. Then the whole of mankind's sins was on Him and the Father forsook Him. Am I right to say that, at that moment, through the Son's pleading, Son of God (God Himself) deomonstrates His great love. And in the act of shielding God's wrath Jesus took upon Himself the sins of all men. And the crucifixion becomes a redemptive sacrifice?
So, though intended to be a punishment under man's law, Jesus, the trinity God made Himself a sacrificial lamb and die on the cross?
