Pray for Derek Leman!
Some things just never cease to amaze me!
We've all read 1 Corinthians 5:7 that says Yeshua, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed. And we've all read Ephesians 5 which says that Yeshua gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to G-d.
But Derek Leman says:
(1) "Yeshua’s death was NOT an offering…His death was an execution,"; [emphasis added]
(2) "Yeshua was NOT a human sacrifice." [emphasis added]
His explanation? He says "…is the sacrifice of Messiah a literal idea? I want to suggest it is a metaphor…"
CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT IS GOING ON IN HIS POOR, MISGUIDED HEAD????
This is an embarrassment to all of us in the Messianic movement. I don't know what else to say. You can see his post for yourself HERE.
No, wait a second! I do know exactly what to say! Derek is 100% WRONG. Yeshua's sacrificial atonement was 100% real--the realest thing that ever happened.
