This week’s term: Imputation – The act of imputing or crediting to one’s account. It carries three basic senses in the Bible:
- The sin of Adam being credited or imputed to all offspring.
- The sin of the elect of Adam’s fallen race being imputed to Christ.
- The righteousness of Christ being imputed to the believer or the elect of Adam’s race.
Last week’s term: Substitution – One thing placed for, or in the stead of, another: Christ, putting Himself in our place to suffer the just vengeance of God upon sin, and standing in our stead before God, offering the righteousness which is required of us, but which we cannot ourselves offer.
