Did Jesus Die For Everyone’s Sin?

“As they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take and eat it; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks, he gave it to them and said, “Drink from it, all of you. For this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Matthew 26:26-28 CSB


Did Jesus die as the sacrifice for the sins of all humanity? Yes, in that His death on the cross was the perfect sacrifice sufficient to pay for all the sins of all humanity from all of time. No, in that all men will not humble themselves before God and acknowledge His Savior in Jesus the Lord, thus remaining in their sins to reap the full judgment of God, which is eternal condemnation in torment and suffering. Therefore, Jesus says His death will pay for the forgiveness of the sins of many, not all. Jesus’ death on the cross is not a pardon for all humanity so that they can continue to ignore God and reject His commands. The death of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins is to pay the penalty for those who repent of their disobedience, who reject their rebellion against God, who grieve at their ignoring of God for so long and so have returned to Him in humility and for reconciliation. All those who come to Jesus for forgiveness, no matter what they have ever done or failed to do, are welcome at the foot of His cross to receive forgiveness and be cleansed by His blood of all their unrighteousness. Jesus’ sacrifice is sufficient payment for all the sins ever committed by all those who are reconciled to God, but His life is only payment for those who have died to self and have turned to Him to receive pardon and everlasting life with God.
