Jesus cleansed us by taking our sin upon Himself)
Peter states it another way who, speaking of Jesus, says:
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 1 Peter 2:24
These passages from 2nd Corinthians and Galatians say something quite similar.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2nd Corinthians 5:21
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: Galatians 3:13
It is also found in the old testament when the ministry of the suffering servant, Messiah, is prophesied.
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Isaiah 53:11
This says that Jesus took our sins upon himself, or he became sin, or became a curse, for our redemption. Here are two more verses closely related to this theme.
For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Mark 10:45
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. Hebrews 9:28
