The Lord Jesus Christ died a covenant death for the Children the Father had given to Him. 11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. 13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. 14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Some have recently contended for the idea that Jesus died for all men...not just those He came to redeem. If that were the case there are many verses that we quote and take for granted that would have not been needed in scripture as they make a distinction as to who were the actual objects who are redeemed. here are just a few; In Acts 20 Paul speaks of the church which He purchased with His blood 28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. In jn 10 Jesus speaks of laying down His life ...for the sheep Isa 53 speaks of....many... 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. If as some claim..."all men" were intended.....these distinctions would be redundant. To deny the Covenant nature of the perfect atonement is to deny part of the heart of the gospel itself.
