For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. – 2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV)
In this small verse, so much is being said. Yeshua was made to be sin for us even though he was sinless. We know that the lamb to be sacrificed for our sins needed to be without sin, but it’s important to note that he was made sin. The righteous sacrifice had to become the embodiment of our won sins in order for them to be truly cleansed in the sacrifice.
This is something extremely profound. Without the events happening exactly as they occurred, it would have been impossible for God to be righteous in his forgiveness. It required the ultimate sacrifice – not just life but also by accepting the burden of the sin itself.
The last part of this verse must be read properly. It is not our righteousness that was created by the sacrifice. It was God’s righteousness that was revealed. The component of righteousness that was fulfilled with this sacrifice is justice. Forgiveness in itself can be fulfilled without action, but for justice to be fulfilled as well, the sin itself needed to become manifest as the sacrifice. With all of our sins, the only vessel that could carry them was the infinite vessel of the sinless man.
