Where did the Atonement take place?




“The Savior atoned for our sins by suffering in Gethsemane and by giving his life on the cross… In the Garden of Gethsemane, the weight of our sins caused him to feel such agony and heartbreak that he bled from every pore…”—Gospel Principles, 1992, p. 73

Where did Jesus carry our sins? Was it in the Garden of Gethsemane or on the Cross?

“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree…”—1 Peter 2:24

Which “blood” reconciles us? Is it the “blood” of the Garden or the “blood of the cross”?

“And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself.” —Colossians 1:20

Do you “glory” in the cross or does the cross offend you?

“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ…”—Galatians 6:14

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”—1 Corinthians 1:18
