Can you explain the terms “active” and “passive” obedience? Can you historically explain the question(s) about the active obedience of Christ? Give some specific examples of Christ’s obedience. Why does the WCF connect Christ’s suffering to the justice of his Father? What does the WCF mean with the phrase “through the eternal Spirit”? How does this paragraph limit the death of Christ? Join Nathan, Kyle, Joel, and Shawn as we discuss these and other questions from WCF 8.5:

The Lord Jesus, by His perfect obedience, and sacrifice of Himself, which He through the eternal Spirit, once offered up unto God, has fully satisfied the justice of His Father; and purchased, not only reconciliation, but an everlasting inheritance in the kingdom of heaven, for those whom the Father has given unto Him.
