Isaiah 53:5 - By His wounds we are healed

NIV But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
KJV But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

What happens when the judge is also the father of the accused?

That was the "dilemma" God had when Adam rebelled against God. God loves his children, but they have sinned against His nature and the punishment for that is death.

So He determined to take the punishment of man's rebellion Himself. Jesus Christ came as a man and took the judgment due to us so that we could experience the favor due to Him.

Because of Jesus, we have an open door to the Creator. And that door brings us into peace and healing. God's justice and love meet in Jesus Christ.
