Instruct Huang – The Redemption of Christ as a “Restoration”
Scripture : ASV :John 3: 17-21; 31-36
1. Jesus doesn’t comes to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
“Condemn the world.” Condemn: κρίνω assumed tone verb, “conditional, under certain conditions”; should be translated as “Judge” instead.
“But to save the world through him.” Save: σῴζω is also an assumed “passive” tone verb, “Saved and redeemed by Jesus”
“Sin”: means “cannot beat God’s goal” or “failing to meet God’s standard”
V18: According to the original Greek should be translated “He who believes in him is not judged. He who doesn’t believe has been judged already”, reason is “because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God”. (Romans 5:12,14)
Humanity after Adam, all of them are under “sin failing to meet God’s standard”. All are “dead — isolated from God.”(Genesis 2:17)
Jesus came to the world like light:
Reluctant to accept Jesus’ manifestation, unwilling to show damage in the eyes of God. That is people who are unwilling to change their human nature. They will remain in the “arrested” after Adam: all are dead, functionally damaged and isolated from God.
Those who enter the light of Jesus will show God in their future lives and live: “His work of being sculpted in the hands of God is the finished product.”
2. Being redeemed is recognized by Jesus experience God’s true being God’s life (John 3:31-36)
Jesus came to show God’s authority and character in heaven upon those who came near to Him, so that He could know God’s truth.
Some people cannot experience God’s truth without receiving Jesus’ testimony.
The experience of experiencing God’s heavenly reality is the experience of Jesus being able to “carry the sin of the person / restore the functional damage, eliminate the influence of sin, and restore mankind.”
Such people are “people who have eternal life, have God’s life, are no longer affected by sin, and are no longer damaged.”
