The LORD JESUS suffered and died for our sins once and for all, the just for us, the unjust, to bring us to God, to make us right with God, to make us sons of God (1 Peter 3:18). He was put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit (and as a result made us alive by the Spirit). The Passover prepared us for Pentecost, to be sealed and filled by The Holy Spirit.
