Objective Work of Christ

“In the context of this statement Paul located this transition from the old to the new at a single point: the death of all men in Christ’s death for all, and the living of all men for him who was raised for all. To the apostle what had happened in Christ simultaneously transformed not only the status of creation but also the vantage point from which this creation must be viewed.”
