David Burchard History Leave a Comment

“Christ has not only fulfilled the law, but he has also suffered the punishment which the law pronounces over transgressors: Only this fully satisfies God’s righteousness. For Anselm, there were only two possibilities, either punishment or satisfaction. For Luther, satisfaction takes place through punishment, not of the sinner but of Christ.” – Althaus
