    Was our salvation completed when Christ died (It is finished)?
    Or when he arose.

    Had he not risen from the dead would our sins still have been paid for.

    When I go to the store and purchase something - it is mine was I have paid the price ie give the dollar bill to the cashier. The receipt I am given is simply proof that the debt is paid.

    Would the Resurrection be the "receipt" ie the proof that the price of sin had been paid for?

    I vote for resurrection...though it was sealed at the Cross through the atonement.

    I agree for the most part.

    Had Jesus died and not risen from the dead, the atonement would have been of no effect, since it would meant that He was not sinless and deserved to die. Thus he would be no better than anybody other sinner.

    I think it's accurate to say His resurrection completed everything necessary for God to accept the death as sufficient and efficient.

    This question was settled long ago by the Baptist Assembly of 1689:

    From eternity past??


    He defeated satan when He came forth from the grave that third, and appointed morning. However, the bible states that Jesus was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. God chose Jesus to be our Redeemer from before the "get-go", as He was chosen....predestined to save sinners from their sins. He confirmed it when He arose........

    Good post, and you do not need to put the question marks after "past."

    It's a deep subject in that we live in time, and God doesn't........hard to get one's mind wrapped around it.........

    And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

    I am not sure the question isn't faulty.

    For the grace of God that bringeth salvation. Titus 2:11
    And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation Hebrews 5:9
    who is the beginning, Col 1:18

    When did salvation begin?

    When did the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen, become reality?

    What was promised by God to be hoped for, before time began?

    Understand your concern. I was trying to put the question in such a way so it was not misleading. Thus my reason for the following statement from the OP

    Gotcha.

    1 Cor 15:17 states if he was not raised from the dead we are still in our sins.
    And if Christ be not raised, your faith vain; ye are yet in your sins.

    My question is, what allowed and or caused the blood of Jesus to wash away our sins?
