    Jesus died to redeem His sheep who had become lost due to their sin. Jesus paid the penalty for their sin--a price they could not pay. He is the propitiation for their sin.

    They are now bought with a price--the blood of Jesus. Nothing can change that.

    Praise the Lord for His amazing Grace.

    Selah,

    Bro. James

    1. The eternal penalty of sin, death in the lake of fire.

    2. the power of sin

    Essentially? He died to save us from ourselves.

    Mat 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

    Eaternal spiritual death. That death is the price tag associated with sin. Since we cannot pay that price in any other manner, God sent His Son to pay that price for us.

    Helen got it right when she said that essentially, he died to save us from ourselves.

    I believe you are right for Jesus said while He was on earth, that He came Only For His Own, those of the circumcision. I also believe Helen is right, for He came to save us from ourselves.

    But we can’t stop at Matthew, for Christ from heaven has more to say. Christ Jesus says from heaven some few years after Pentecost that He also came for the “uncircumcised”. Hey that is Me. This is Good News. This is the “good news” gospel of today. When understanding came, the Holy Spirit had John write many years later of what he, John, had learned from Paul. This was brought to memory what Christ had said earlier, but none could understand. He came because “…God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

    I believe He came to take us unto Himself. We are His inheritance, those predestined; those who chose Him.

    You couldn't answer without dragging in hyper-dispensationalism, could you?

    Jesus Christ died to save His Sheep from the penalty of sin, eternal separation from God, and to redeem and reconcile them to God. His Sheep are those chosen in Him by God the Father before the foundation of the world.

    From the wrath of God:

    "Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God." (Rom 5:9)

    Quiet simply---Jesus came to save us from God!!! The Bible says that God is a consuming fire---and that it is because of God's tender mercies that we are not consumed!!! Jesus is the hand that "stays the hand" of God's consuming fire. Jesus is God's "Tender Mercies!!"

    There is no such thing as "grammatically incorrect questions." Some usages are more widely accepted than others, but no usage is “incorrect.” And some usages are more appropriate in some situations and genres of literature than they are in others. I have learned that the most important grammatical consideration in asking questions on this message board is the comprehension of the reader.

    “From what did Jesus die to save us?” may be more appropriate than “What did Jesus die to save us from?” in some situations, but that is NOT true of this message board.

    Furthermore, I desired to stress the preposition, and by placing it at the end of the sentence, I accomplished my purpose.

    (Did you notice that I began one of my sentences in this post with a conjunction? What do you suppose I did that for? :D )
