The Redemption Of Fallen Man

If fallen man was going to be saved (and God was certainly under no obligation to do so), it would be necessary for the divine Logos (the One who was with God and was God) to voluntarily take upon Himself flesh and live the perfectly sinless life that would qualify Him to suffer and die as One who was cursed by God on a cruel piece of wood just outside the gates of Jerusalem some two thousand years ago. This is precisely what Paul was talking about when he declared, in Galatians 3:13, that “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, ‘CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE’).”
