To redeem us, Jesus Christ did not need to do what condemned sinners are said to do: suffer forever. In Hell. No way. Jesus suffered temporarily. If it wasn’t necessary for the Paschal Lamb to suffer forever, why is it necessary for the unsaved?
From Psalm 22: “All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him” (NIV).
The New Jerusalem Bible translates the words for “all the ends of the earth” as “the whole wide world.” The whole wide world will remember and turn to the Lord. All humanity? Seems that way. From Psalm 65: “O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.”
