Chapter 9. Christ's Death, Passion, Burial, etc.

[We confess] That our Lord Jesus Christ offered himself a voluntary sacrifice unto his Father for us;4646Heb. 10:1-12. that he suffered contradiction of sinners; that he was wounded and plagued for our transgressions;4747Isa. 53:5; Heb. 12:3. that he, being the clean and innocent Lamb of God,4848John 1:29. was damned in the presence of an earthly judge,4949Matt. 27:11,26; Mark 15; Luke 23. that we should be absolved before the tribunal seat of our God;5050Gal. 3:13. that he suffered not only the cruel death of the cross (which was accursed by the sentence of God),5151Deut. 21:23. but also that he suffered for a season the wrath of his Father,5252Matt. 26:38-39. which sinners had deserved. But yet we avow, that he remained the only and well-beloved and blessed Son of his Father, even in the midst of his anguish and torment, which he suffered in body and soul, to make the full satisfaction for the sins of the people.53532 Cor. 5:21. After the which, we confess and avow, that there remains no other sacrifice for sin:5454Heb. 9:12; 10:14. which if any affirm, we nothing doubt to avow that they are blasphemers against Christ's death, and the everlasting purgation and satisfaction purchased to us by the same.
