Rev. Dr. John Bombaro, Director of Spiritual Fitness for the Chaplain of the Marine Corps’ Office at The Pentagon, studies 2 Corinthians 5:21 on today’s episode: “For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” Rev. Bombaro talks about Paul’s burden and how this verse is the answer to that burden, Jesus’ atonement as laid out in this verse, and the connection to the serpent on the staff.
“The New Covenant” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron featuring a step-by-step walk through 2 Corinthians 3-7:1, focusing on what it means to be Christians of the New Testament age, waiting for the glory of the world to come.
