Limited Atonement is a doctrine offered in answer to the question, "for whose sins did Christ atone?" The Bible teaches that Christ died for those whom God gave him to save (John 17:9). Christ died, indeed, for many people, but not all (Matthew 26:28). Specifically, Christ died for the invisible Church -- the sum total of all those who would ever rightly bear the name "Christian" (Ephesians 5:25). I was just wondering , if christ died for all , why does the scripture in Matthew 26:28 say "Many" instead of "All" .................? Matthew 26:28This is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
