The sacrifice of Christ—foundation for the forgiveness of sins

The perfect sacrifice of Christ replaced the sacrificial service of the Old Testament. Jesus Christ led a life without sin. Through His sacrifice, the willing surrender of His life (John 10: 17-18), He broke the power of Satan and conquered the Devil and all his works, namely sin and death (2 Corinthians 5: 21). Since then the forgiveness of sins–in the sense of erasing–has become possible (Hebrews 10: 18), as has redemption from sin and death (Romans 3: 24).
