[quote:3partn3s]If you understand it, then tell us what He finished (He said “it is finished”)
when He was on the cross. Then He resurrected – What was it that He meant when He said it?
P.S. – I don’t think it was the Paschel Supper that He was referring to![/quote:3partn3s]
I’m fully aware that you don’t think it’s the Paschel Supper but I was even willing to agree with you for the sake of furthering the discussion. But still you neglected no answer. Apparently you think it was finished but still give importance to the ressurection enough to not ignore it by calling it “proof” and that our [i:3partn3s]Lord defeated the death penalty for sin.[/i:3partn3s] He accomplished all this but yet it was already finished? Sorry Ron, but I’m not following. I’m gonna assume you either don’t know the answer or don’t want to answer. Let’s move on.
As far as what was accomplished at Calvary here is a wonderful explanation by Scott Hahn again. Pay close attention to the difference of your own understanding and the catholic understanding of what was accomplished:
[quote:3partn3s]I had firm convictions about the finished work of Jesus Christ; that He accomplished our redemption on the cross. Those convictions I still hold fast to. Every Christian, every Catholic must. The work of our redemption is accomplished. It is finished. [b:3partn3s]But the application of that redemptive work of Christ by the Holy Spirit is another matter[/b:3partn3s], one that I did not really come to grips with because it involves suffering which nobody wants to come to grips with – either suffering in this life or suffering afterwards to expiate or to repay or to provide restitution for the effects of sin.
