Gospel Economics

August 27, 2010

“When sin is depicted as a debt, the New Testament calls Christ our Surety (Heb. 7:22). That’s an economic term, just as debt is an economic term. With this language, the Bible tells us that Christ is the One Who cosigns the note. He is the One Who stands there, backing up our indebtedness, taking on Himself the requirement of what must be paid.”

– R. C. Sproul,The Truth of the Cross (Orlando, FL; Reformation Trust Pub., 2007), 42.
