One man

John 11:49-50 (ESV)

But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all. Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.”

One man dies for all

in order for a nation not to perish

This man is both a gift and a sacrifice

A holy man

In essence this man represents the human race

An Adam or one who Paul refers to as the second Adam

One who John calls the Lamb of God and one who Abraham calls God’s provision

A man born for one purpose only

To die for a nation

Yet by dying for one nation, one people

He died for all nations

Because all suffered from the same disease

The disease of sin

One sacrifice to save souls from destruction

We must acknowledge Him, He gave His life for the salvation of all

One man the second Adam

John 12:24 (ESV)

Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

John 12:27 (ESV)

“Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But for this purpose I have come to this hour.
