THE JUST FOR THE UNJUST
God caused the (sinless) Christ to become sin. He caused Him to become what He was not, NOT by imparting sin to Him, or infusing sin in Him, BUT by imputation. Christ bore the imputed sins of His elect as the sacrificial lamb bore the sins of Israel under the Old Covenant. He died "the JUST for the unjust". (1 Peter 3:18).
He "through the eternal spirit offered himself WITHOUT SPOT to God". (Hebrews 9:14).
