Though He was delivered up according to God’s determined plan and foreknowledge, you used lawless people to nail Him to a cross and kill Him. 24 God raised Him up, ending the pains of death, because it was not possible for Him to be held by it.
The plan was for Jesus to come and live a perfect life from the start in order to have a perfect life to offer as a perfect sacrifice in the end.This was the plan God had determined. He used the wicked intentions of lawless men to provide a way for wicked, lawless people to be redeemed. He overcame sin, Satan and death so that sinful, satanic, dead people might be holy, blameless, godly and alive.
