“Joseph and His Brothers: Threats and Guilt”
Response of Faith: Heidelberg Catechism 12, 13, 18
Q. According to God’s righteous judgment we deserve punishment both now and in eternity: how then can we escape this punishment and return to God’s favor?
A. God requires that his justice be satisfied. Therefore the claims of this justice must be paid in full, either by ourselves or by another.
Q. Can we make this payment ourselves?
A. Certainly not. Actually, we increase our debt every day.
Q. Then who is this mediator―true God and at the same time a true and righteous human?
A. Our Lord Jesus Christ, who was given to us to completely deliver us and make us right with God.
