Is Christ’s sacrifice enough?

You speak of how Jesus’ death on the cross covers our sin. The exchange doesn’t work for me though… he died and was excommunicated from God for 3 days and can then save all those who all on Him? It seems a bit unjust to me! 3 days of death for an eternity with his people… now if he was to die in our place, that’s a sacrifice but he does not preside in Hell but in heaven with the father.  

Let’s say my brother got a life sentence, I would 100% do 3 days in jail over his life in jail. 

From what I can fathom, it is not a fair exchange. 

I don’t understand how his death for 3 days is enough to cover our eternity. It doesn’t seem like much of a sacrifice to me. 

Dont get me wrong, Jesus was an incredibly wise human and may have been Gods son. But, his sacrifice seems insignificant. 

So, how is Jesus’ sacrifice appropriate to cover our sins, how is 3 days of sacrifice enough to cover human kind?  

Do you have any wisdom to share on that topic? 


What number do you get if you multiply a miniscule fraction by infinity? Jesus is infinite God. Each of us are mere finite creatures, made by God. Each of us have a finite quantity of sin. It’s a lot, and more than I can list, but it is finite. That gives you a finite cost to pay. Add together those amounts for all of the people who will ever exist, and that is still a finite number. But Jesus, as the infinite creator, could take all of that on Himself in a moment, and more than cover the cost. The bottom line is that God the Father saw it as being sufficient. That’s the concept of “propitiation” that the Apostle Paul talks about in Romans. (Romans 3:25,26)


And why do I need forgiveness for my sins?


God is just.  Sin must be paid for, not ignored or brushed under the carpet.  Ezekiel 8:14

Romans 3:23

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
