SINLESS, YET NUMBERED WITH TRANSGRESSORS
Christ was numbered among transgressors although not one Himself.
He was made sin in that His soul was MADE an offering for sin, in fulfillment of the Old Testament sacrifice types, Isaiah 53:10.
He was THE SIN OFFERING by which God transferred to His account ALL of the sin debt of His people, and simultaneously transferred to their account ALL of His righteous obedience, thereby once for all putting away their sin, justifying them, and reconciling them to Himself Hebrews 9:26, Romans 5:9 and 10.
