Jesus died a sinner???

Martin Luther, the father of the Reformation movement, (known as, Reformed theology) taught that the prophets of the OT prophesied, “that Christ should become the greatest transgressor, murderer, adulterer, thief, rebel, and blasphemer that ever was, or could be in the world.” To my knowledge, this was a new doctrine, having never been heard of before Luther’s revelation. How can someone who has studied scripture and was an alleged (sola-scrpitura) advocate even entertain such a blasphemous thought? He claimed that the Lord lost his holiness and innocence at Calvary, and Jesus died as a sinful person (Luther on Galatians, Chapter 3:13, London Edition, 1838, pp. 213-215, as quoted by Albert Barnes, “2 Corinthians & Galatians,” Barnes Notes on the New Testament, Grand Rapids: Baker, 1955, pp. 334-335). A Lutheran scholar has written that “it is Scriptural to say that God did impute the guilt of man to the innocent Christ”. A Presbyterian writer, James M. Boice, asserted that when Christ died upon the cross he, “violated the law — through no fault of his own — and he became technically guilty of all of the law” (“Galatians,” The Expositor’s Bible Commentary, Frank Gaebelein, Vol. 10, p. 460).This blasphemous false teaching contends that when the Lord suffered upon the cross, he actually bore our sins in his body, so that in reality, Jesus actually died as a “sinner.”

The apostle Paul writes in Hebrews 9-28, and declares that Christ will “appear a second time, apart from sin”. and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation… This verse contradicts the implication that Jesus at the time of his death became a sinful person that the Father could not look upon. If Jesus would have died in sin, He could not possibly return a second time apart from sin. Hebrews 4-15 declares that the Savior was “without sin”……. In Him there is no sin, He was blameless and a spotless sacrifice…Thus, the meaning of Hebrews 9:28 is>The second coming of Christ will not be for the purpose of providing a redemptive plan for sin, or another way of salvation, as many Universalists teach. That was achieved by the “first” coming; when HE said on the cross: “it is finished”. The “second” coming will be for judgment Hebrews 9- 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: John 5- 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation, Acts 24-15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
