1 John 2:1-2

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 My little children, I write these things to you, so that you may not sin. But if any man does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. [The Greek in this verse for little children is an affectionate term of address for disciples, teknia <5040>; those still sinning without salvation.]

 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for the sins of the whole world. [Notice! John has said Christ is the atoning sacrifice not only for ours, (the early Christians), but he is the atoning sacrifice for the whole world. From the Word of the Lord within: "If one man's sin can curse the whole human race, then how much more just is it for one man's righteousness to pay for the sins of the whole world? Sounds logical doesn't it? HE IS LOGICAL.]
