In what sense did Jesus take God's wrath on the Cross? It seems to me that scripture focuses more on the physical death, as Peter says, he bore our sins in His body. As I understand it the death of Christ met the requirements of God's law and is therefore propitious. But there does seem to be a spiritual dimension. But the NT doesn't seem to focus on that? And in what form did this wrath take? Was it being cut off from the presence of the Father? Or were there spiritual flames so to speak? Because whatever happened, it was enough to pay for an eternity in hell. Which makes me wonder how He is a Subsitute for our eternal damnation? Is it His value as God's Son? I realise there are a lot of questions here. I have The Book by Packer "In My Place Condemned He Stood" but it more made a case for Penal Subsitutionary Atonement than it did explain how it works.
