Lesson Two

“Born Again”



Answer Key


1.        John 3:16 applies to you just as surely as he did to Nicodemus!  You must be “Born Again” spiritually!  You must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that he was the sacrifice of God the Father, on the altar of the cross, for the sins of all who would believe and receive him as Lord and Savior!  Unless one is “Born Again”, they will be separated from God for all eternity after death!


2.        Genesis 3:21 reveals that God clothed the nakedness of Adam and Eve after they had sinned.  It is assumed by most Bible teachers that in doing so He had to kill the animal from which He took the skin to make their clothing!

In short, that was the first blood sacrifice offered in Scripture. In doing that He transferred the sins of Adam and Eve to that animal and their sins were put to death in the animal. It was that sacrifice that put in order the system of sacrifices we find in the Old Testament. In order to clothe you in His own righteousness, His Son Jesus Christ, “The Lamb of God” had to shed His blood on the cross so that when you were  “Born Again” your sins could be transferred to Jesus and put to death in Christ Jesus!


3.        Hebrews 9:22 is very emphatic!  Without the shedding of blood there can be no forgiveness of sin.  The blood sacrifice had to be both “sinless and willing”. The animals offered in sacrifice were sinless in that an animal cannot sin.  But they were not willing sacrifices!  Jesus Christ was both sinless and willing, therefore, he was the ultimate sacrifice of God for the sins of man!


4.        2 Cor 5:21 explains that when we came to Christ our sins were transferred to Christ Jesus, and were put to death in Him! Now that our sins have been put to death in Christ Jesus, when we receive Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior we become the righteousness of God in and through Christ Jesus!


5.        Leviticus 4:27-35 relates to Jesus Christ and Hebrews 4:15 in that the sinner brought his sin offering to the Priest. He laid his hand upon the sin offering and confessing his sin transferring his sin from himself to the sacrificial animal and then the blood was applied by the Priest as an offering for the sins of the sinner.  Symbolically speaking, when we come to Jesus confessing our sin we transfer our sins from ourselves to Jesus in order to put them to death in Christ Jesus.  Not only is Christ Jesus our High Priest, whose blood cleanses us from our sins, but was Himself tempted in all points like we are and yet remained sinless.  (Hebrews 4:15) He understands our temptations and our failures!
