To recap, penal substitutionary atonement is a fancy theological term that answers the question, "What did Jesus do by dying on the cross?" The word penal tells us that His death on the cross was the just penalty for the crime of sin. The word substitutionary tells us that His death was actually paying the penalty for our crimes and sins. Jesus traded places with us sinners. Today's video will focus on the word atonement.
