The sufficiency and insufficiency of Jesus’ death

publicOne of the clearest teachings of the New Testament is the sufficiency of Jesus’ death in its atoning value.  As the REACH SA Prayer Book says in the prayer before communion, “Almighty God our heavenly Father, of Your infinite mercy You gave Your only Son Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption; who made there by His one offering of Himself, never to be repeated, a full, perfect and sufficient sacrifice for the sins of the whole world.”
