What Does God Require of Us?

Questions for Lesson 3

Who Is Jesus Christ?



Lesson 3.4: Unlike Adam, though Jesus was perfectly obedient to God under even the greatest test. He could therefore sacrifice his perfect human life to pay for Adam's sin.

Q: Did Jesus offer only a sacrifice in payment of Adam's sins or for all sinners? Consider the following verses (emphasis in italics bold):
1 John 2:2 And he is a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins, yet not for ours only but also for the whole world's. (NWT)
Romans 5:15 But it is not with the gift as it was with the trespass. For if by one man's trespass many died, the undeserved kindness of God and his free gift with the undeserved kindness by one man Jesus Christ abounded much more to many. vs 16...but the gift resulted from many trespasses in a declaration of righteousness.
Rom 5:18 So then, as through one trespass the result to men of all sorts was condemnation, likewise also through one act of justification the result to men of all sorts is a declaring them righteous for life.
Rom 5:19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man many were constituted sinners, likewise also through the obedience of the one (person) many will be constituted righteous
John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
also see John 4:42 / John 6:33 / 1 Peter 3:18

Lesson 3.4: This is what the Bible refers to as the "ransom." Adams children could thus be released from condemnation to death. All who put their faith in Jesus can have their sins forgiven and receive everlasting life (1 Timothy 2:5,6 ; John 3:16; Romans 5:18, 19).
Q:
The question is do you honestly believe that all who put their faith in Jesus will have their sins forgiven and have everlasting life?
Q: As we shall see in later chapters the WTS does not believe this...do you?
