Jesus took our place so we can do what the religious leaders of his time failed to do: see Jesus for who he is and arrange our lives accordingly. Jesus, who knew no sin, was betrayed, arrested, sentenced and sent to the cross for our sake, that we might become the righteousness of God. Matthew 26:47-27:10; Matthew 20:13, 22:12; 2 Corinthians 5:21
