Stunning Conclusion

When we review all this Old Testament material (the shedding and sprinkling of blood, the sin offering, the Passover, the meaning of 'sin-bearing,' the scapegoat and Isaiah 53), and consider its New Testament application to the death of Christ, we are obliged to conclude that the cross was a substitutionary sacrifice. 

Christ died for us. Christ died instead of us.

John R. W. Stott, The Cross of Christ
