The Doctrine of Substitutionary Atonement

The Doctrine of Penal Substitutionary Atonement: Blood for blood the Laws say. There's a murderous Rebel and a Prince in at room. But according to the Plan arranged between the King and His Son, the King executes His Son with an ax, not the Rebel. His blood gushes all over the Rebel as He dies. Life for life. The King is satisfied; the Rebel's crimes have been paid by the Son's Blood. 

In the same way, Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rebellions against God, thereby paying the just penalty for our crimes in our place, according to the Plan of Yahweh, the Holy Trinity, so that now we are able to go free having been covered in the Son's blood. Jesus took out punishment by dying in our place. All of us who believe in Him do not get the ax, because Jesus got it for us.
