Matthew 26:28

Matthew 26:28 (see also Matthew 20:28)
“For this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.”

Mark 14:24:
And He said to them, “This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.”

Luke 22:19
And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”






























John Calvin comments:The word many does not mean a part of the world only, but the whole human race: he contrasts many with one, as if to say that he would not be the Redeemer of one man, but would meet death to deliver many of their cursed guilt. No doubt that in speaking to a few Christ wished to make His teaching available to a large number. At the same time we must note that in Luke (saying for you) He addresses the disciples by name and encourages the faithful as individuals to apply the pouring-out of His blood to their benefit. So when we come to the holy table not only should the general idea come to our mind that the world is redeemed by the blood of Christ, but also each should reckon to himself that his own sins are covered.” (Calvin’s New Testament Commentaries, Matthew, Mark and Luke, Vol. III, James and Jude, p.139, emphasis mine)

Dave Hunt asks: Where is ‘limited atonement’? (What Love is This?, p.316)

Good question.
