Was the crucifixion the act by which God poured out his wrath on his Son or was it something else? Is God guilty of killing his innocent Son, or should the culpability for Jesus' death be placed elsewhere? Does the atonement reveal an angry God who poured out his hatred, his fierce anger, on his Son? Does the Bible answer these questions?In this short book, we look at the reasons people have historically claimed that God deliberately poured out his wrath on Jesus at the cross, and also why others protest this idea. Just as importantly, we consider how our beliefs about this doctrine can make a great difference to the way we live as we walk with God.By observing how the first disciples talked about the crucifixion, by surveying sacrifice and wrath in the Old Testament, and by examining the Messianic prophecies pertaining to the cross, this book presents the argument that Jesus was indeed our atoning sacrifice for sins, but that he was murdered by a conspiracy of evildoers, not by his Father.Dr. Glenn R.
