Transfer of punishment is our foundation

“So it was necessary, since God had purposed to save his church, to transfer the punishment from them who deserved it but could not bear it, to one who had not deserved it but could bear it.

This transfer of punishment by divine dispensation is the foundation of the Christian faith, indeed of all the supernatural revelation contained in Scripture.”

– John Owen, The Glory of Christ (Carlisle, PA: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1994), 74.
