Setting up...

The second of six summings-up that P T Forsyth gives in the sixth chapter of his book, The Work of Christ (pages 149-50)

Reconciliation rests on Christ’s person, and it is effected by his entire work, doing and suffering.  This work does three things. (1) It reveals and puts into historic action the changeless grace of God.  (2) It reveals and establishes his holiness, and therein also the sinfulness of sin. And (3) it exhibits a humanity in perfect  tune with that will of God. And it does more than exhibit these things – it sets them up, grace, holiness, and the new humanity in its Head.
