Weekly Knox: Calvary

"Bethlehem means Christ born man, and man re-born in Christ.  Calvary means that mankind has died in the person of Christ, it means also that Christ has died in the name of mankind; not instead of us, as our substitute, but in our name as our representative." - Pastoral Sermons

"...not instead of us, as our substitute, but in our name as our representative". This is profound. And I'm not sure I'm getting it.

Glad I'm not the only one who isn't sure about getting that.
