    Thanks Jason.

    The more that I understand how angry God is at sin, the more I understand the deep of his love through Jesus.

    I also liked your bushfire analogy. “the fire cannot go, where the fire has already been”.

    Beautiful Jason – thankyou. I love how you tie propitiation and substitutionary atonement together.

    Perhaps also worth mentioning the reference in the word “propitiation” back to the mercy seat in the OT. Jesus is said to be our ‘mercy seat’and the sacrificial blood which was sprinkled on the mercy seat.

    The blood sprinkled on the mercy seat came between God and the Tablets of the Law which were kept in the Ark of the Covenant. It’s a wonderful picture that explains the idea of propitiation.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I love how God’s justice and love are perfectly connected in propitiation.

    @PJ, Yes, that’s a picture I haven’t thought much about but the symbolism is clearly rich and instructive.
