Who Killed Jesus?
He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not 
also with him graciously give us all things? (Romans 8:32)
One of my friends who used to be a pastor in Illinois was preaching to a 
group of prisoners in a state prison during Holy Week several years ago. At 
one
point in his message, he paused and asked the men if they knew who killed
Jesus.
Some said the soldiers did. Some said the Jews did. Some said Pilate. After
there was silence, my friend said simply, “His Father killed him.”

That’s what the first half ofRomans 8:32
says: God did not spare his own Son but handed him over — to death. “This 
Jesus [was] delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of
God” (Acts 2:23).Isaiah 53
puts it even more bluntly, “We esteemed him stricken, smitten by God. . . . 
It was the will of the Lord to crush him; he (his Father!) has put him to
grief” (Isaiah 53:4,10).
Or as Romans 3:25says, “God put [him] forward as a propitiation by his blood.” Just as 
Abraham lifted the knife over the chest of his son Isaac, but then spared 
his son
because there was a ram in the thicket, so God the Father lifted the knife 
over the chest of his own Son, Jesus — but did not spare him, because he was
the ram; he was the substitute.

God did not spare his own Son, because it was the only way he could spare
us. The guilt of our transgressions, the punishment of our iniquities, the 
curse
of our sin would have brought us inescapably to the destruction of hell. But 
God did not spare his own Son; he gave him up to be pierced for our 
transgressions,
and crushed for our iniquities, and crucified for our sin.

This verse is the most precious verse in the Bible to me because the 
foundation of the all-encompassing promise of God’s future grace is that the
Son of God bore in his body all my punishment and all my guilt and all my 
condemnation and all my blame and all my fault and all my corruption, so 
that I might stand before a great and holy God, forgiven, reconciled, justified, 
accepted, and the beneficiary of unspeakable promises of pleasure forever 
and everat his right hand.
